Slow life of a southern village

Experience the slow life of a lesser-known village in the south and end your experience at a traditional wattle and daub hut where a local family will cook you a gracious village meal!

You will go on a boat trip along a neighboring river, which is well-known for its bird and aquatic life, with a naturalist by your side. As you travel upstream, you pass by the homes of the villagers as they go about their daily lives and little children waving at you with smiling faces. The boat will dock at a coconut husk workshop where you will see how the locals turn coconut husk into household items. You will then get on bicycles and cycle through the village, passing by paddy fields, stopping at a local market to buy fresh vegetables, all while getting glimpse of everyday country life. You end your bike ride at a traditional wattle and daub hut where a local family will greet you and demonstrate how to make a Sri Lankan meal. We end the experience with an extensive Sinhalese lunch.
