  1. Sri Lanka is one of the best destination for tourists. If you're golfer, you can visit Nuwara Eliya Golf Club. In addition, you can visit Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara, Wales Park, Adam's Peak, Flag Rock, Ceylon Tea Museum, Stardust Casino, Attidiya Bird Sanctuary so on.. Just book beach hotels in Negombo.. Happy Sri Lanka Tour!
