An Itinerary in Sri Lanka for the easy going, relaxed traveler

3 months ago, 7 guests were invited to travel with TJD. We created a concept on traveling with strangers, getting to know them, falling in love with a country together and breaking boundaries.

Sri lanka has the nature, the history, the heritage sites and the cuisine. Not only do they have beautiful beaches but it’s the land of peace and smiles. You can never visit Sri Lanka just once. And that is why, our first Travel With TJD was set out in Sri Lanka to be our first mini series.

An Itinerary in Sri Lanka for the easy going, relaxed traveler.

Here is An Itinerary in Sri Lanka

As part of the #NotATourist Campaign with Visa, we will be sharing stories, articles and tips on destinations across the world.

The NotATourist campaign is designed to inspire travel beyond the regular tourist sites to savour truly local experiences that are the essence of making a destination unique. The campaign is there to help travellers explore destinations as local inhabitants – not as tourists – by providing local knowledge using crowd sourced digital content that is showcased on Visa’s NotATourist website and the Visa Explore mobile app. NotATourist also offers travelers a platform to describe the many facets of a destination by sharing their own images, videos, posts and comments, making them ambassadors or tour guides of their favourite travel spots.

To participate in #NotATourist all you need to do is use the hashtag and tag @visamiddleeast for us to find you and we will share your stories and images.

The campaign invites users to share content on social media using the hashtag ‘#NotATourist’ and will give participants a chance to win a weekly prize of US$500 for submitting pictures, videos or tips on how to find ‘secret’ and little-known spots or experiences in key travel destinations. In August, Visa will announce two Ultimate #NotATourist content contributors who will each be awarded a travel package worth US$5000. An Itinerary in Sri Lanka.

    One solid reason to visit Srilanka is “ Srilanka, is a miracle”’. It is a bundle of contradictions.During my last trip to Srilanka we booked a short term rental with https://www.heybnbworld.com and had an awesome time in Srilanka.Whispering Palms Beach Resort is an is an amazing place which will cater to all your needs!
