One of the best websites informing about destinations for one- or two-day trips in Sri Lanka is http://trips.lakdasun.org/
The articles on the Lakdasun website are written by Sri Lankan travellers who enjoy to discover the beauty of the natural and cultural heritage of their own country and to share their knowledge and their experiences with others. There are currently more than 800 (!) trip reports published on Lakdasun, most of the visited places are off the beaten path, unknown to almost all foreigners. So if you are looking for an inspiration for your own holidays in Sri Lanka and want to see the genuine "serendipity" places - apart from the well-known tourist centres - then we highly recommend you visit the Lakdasun trip reports...
