Sri Lanka with kids

Should you travel to Sri Lanka with kids? Is it a family friendly travel destination?

Short answer: YES ❤️ In fact, families are often the most happy guests in Sri Lanka. Travelling with kids, you will feel welcome everywhere, and the younger children will get a lot of positive attention 😍. And besides, Sri Lanka is full of activities that children love. Some highlights are :

🐘 Seeing elephants and other wild animals on safari.

🏄 Surfing, swimming and playing on the beach.

⛰ Train ride + easy trekking in the Highlands.

🐢 Snorkling with turtles in Hikkaduwa.
