Jaffna (397km from Colombo)
Today, Jaffna offers from its must-see classics such as culture, untouched beaches, and unique lifestyle similar to Southern Indian culture to the vastly developing infrastructure. The development efforts have built the confidence to those who are settling back in their homeland in numbers and the contrast is exciting and emotional. Jaffna is now easily accessible even by surface or by air. The fast-developing road infrastructure makes Jaffna just 3 and a half hours away from Anuradhapura. There are many domestic airlines flying off to the Jaffna Pallaly airport, so convenience is not a question. Jaffna offers the many historic buildings going back to the Colonial Era when once the Portuguese occupied it way back in 1619 followed by the Dutch and the British. The historic and cultural significance Jaffna has to offer has to be experienced to be understood.
