About Us

Welcome to StayinLanka, a captivating window into the rich tapestry of destinations that our island nation has to offer. From the golden beaches of the South to the misty highlands in the central province, from our bustling cities to our serene countryside, StayinLanka seeks to unfold the many layers of our beautiful homeland.

I am Dinesh, a traveler like you and the founder of this blog. Born and raised in Sri Lanka, my life has been an endless love affair with our landscapes, our culture, and our people. With over a decade of travel and writing experience, I aim to reveal Sri Lanka that I know and love, going beyond the tourist hotspots to introduce you to the hidden gems waiting to be discovered.

StayinLanka caters to a broad array of adventurers. Are you a solo traveler seeking off-the-beaten-path destinations? Or perhaps you’re a family looking for safe and enjoyable activities for all ages. Whether you’re a nature lover on the hunt for your next wildlife expedition or a foodie eager to delve into our exotic local cuisine, StayinLanka is your comprehensive guide.

For the cultural explorers, we offer immersive experiences, from attending colorful local festivals and visiting ancient temples to learning the traditional arts and crafts that have been passed down through generations. If wildlife encounters are what thrill you, follow us on journeys to Yala National Park, home to the highest concentration of leopards in the world, or to the tranquil waters of Trincomalee, where you can spot majestic blue whales.

For the culinary adventurers, we provide insider tips on the best street food spots, the tastiest home-style cooking, and even guides on how to cook your own authentic Sri Lankan meal.

StayinLanka also seeks to be a resource for locals who want to explore their own backyard. Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or embarking on a cross-country journey, we provide practical advice, budget tips, and offbeat suggestions that will inspire you to see Sri Lanka through a new lens.

In this blog, you’ll find engaging stories, high-quality photographs, and helpful tips that reflect my personal experiences and insights. I believe that the best travel stories are those that are shared, and so I invite you to join me on this journey, to comment, to ask questions, and to share your own stories of traveling in Sri Lanka.

StayinLanka is about more than just seeing the sights; it’s about experiencing the soul of Sri Lanka. We aim to inspire, inform, and encourage you to step off the beaten path and create your own unique Sri Lankan adventure.
