Today we cycled with the most traffic around us, since we arrived in Sri Lanka. Really bothering. Well, this is the high season for the south coast, and we already expected lively towns full of tourists.
In fact, it was exactly like this. And so was the traffic in between- lots of buses and tuk tuks. Nothing to see beside the road, even the beautiful sea views couldn´t compensate the road situation.
We didn´t like it at all, as we were used to travel along rice fields and wildlife.
Arriving in Unawatuna, for the first time in Sri Lanka we experienced full tourist facilities. This must be a mekka for thef ixed price tourist . We found a quiet guest house away from the noisy beach area (“Meedum villa”) and relaxed from the huzzle of that ride.
