Rather than do another drive we opted to take a seaplane from our accommodation at Tri, 45 mins from Galle on Koggala Lake. Tri took us to the nearby Air Force base by boat, a 15-20 min journey and formalities were done and off we flew over the countryside. Seeing a variety of landscapes from close range was exciting and...

After the long flight from California to Sri Lanka we were not eager for drive to Sigiriya, where we would walk up the monumental rocks and go on game drives. Cinnamon Air offered a comfortable alternative-- 35 minute flight in comfortable seats with the added bonus of looking out the window at scenic green vistas. Cinnamon Air even arranged for...

We were heading to Anuradhapura, so didn't fancy a long long drive after a 15 hour journey from Newcastle (UK). We chartered Cinammon airlines to take us up to Anuradhapura (half an hour), and then bring us back at the end of the holiday (from Trincomalee, approx 1 hour). The pilots are soooo relaxed, always smiling and literally flying the...

I received both text and email a couple of days before our first flight alerting us to a 30 minute time change in the flight. At Colombo, we were met at the GA barrier by...

“虫除けスプレーは必須です!長袖長ズボンも。水辺なので、待っている間に相当喰われ、後日腫れました。 飛行機は小型艇で9人乗り、左1席右2席の3列、すべてエコノミーです。混んでいる場合は、バランスをとるため体重により振り分け、座席指定されるかも。”
