Rural Hospitality and Serendipity in Sri Lanka’s South

June 17, 2019 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

If you’re visiting Sri Lanka for the first time, you’ll be surprised at how diverse Sri Lanka is in terms of the different cultures and the contrasting lifestyles from various regions ranging from the North to the South. With our ‘Southern Serendipity’ signature experience, you will gain cultural insight and get the chance to immerse yourself into the local life.

Rasanjith, standing in front of his family home

 

Meet your host Rasanjith, a retired hotel manager, who has opened his charming house for selected guests. This beautiful village home, which has been in the family for generations, has a typical Sri Lankan garden and is surrounded by its own rice paddies where the family grows just enough rice for their daily needs.

While many of the people in Rasanjith’s village have left to find work and fortune in Sri Lanka’s major cities, Rasanjith is content to remain in the local community where he grew up and provide for his family with the fresh produce he cultivates himself.

Take a stroll with Rasanjith through his beautifully landscaped garden, full of exotic trees, shrubs, culinary herbs, and vegetables. After viewing the impressive number of plant species located in the garden, many of which have medicinal properties, you may be ready for another cup of tea!

As the sun starts to set, head inside for some homemade refreshments. Find out more about the local way of life of the Southern Sri Lankan people while enjoying a cup of tea with Rasanjith and sampling some more local snacks. When you’re well-rested and pleasantly satisfied, it will be time to bid farewell to Rasanjith and his family.
