    A lot of Indians as well. In Kandy an Indian fm Qatar said their group was consisting of over a hundred (possibly company sponsored) incl. children. A few Arabs (visible in swimming pools or jewellery stores) too in addition to traditionally European tourists.

    Quality hotels and good infra - roads well paved in spite of mostly of two lanes only and speed limit.

    Safari is particularly impressive through the well conserved nature. Of course not to forget Ceylon tea as Lanka's staple product.

    SL Parliamentary Election today. It's said the elephant party will win over the leaf (their logo)

    Reportedly their turnout rate is as high as 70%.

    The Indian cricket team is visiting SL, so expect lot of Indians, SL is anyway a popular destination among Indians along with Maldives.

    I hope the elephant logo party is pro India :D

    the Sinhalese girl I met happens to be a fan of bollywood. she could understand both Tamil and Hindi. but not sure how typical of her among Lankan youth.
