A beach town in Sri Lanka, Bentota has many secrets up its sleeve that are waiting to be discovered one at a time.
Bentota however is a great destination as it is the home of famed architect Geoffrey Bawa. “You can visit Lunuganga, his home and gardens if you make a prior booking as there is a guided tour that takes you through the space,” said Wester Felthman, General Manager, Jetwing Saman Villas.
Some of the things you can do in this town include:
1. Madu Ganga River Safari
2. Galapata Raja Maha Vihara Temple
3. Turtle Conservation
4. Puppet Museum
5. Geoffrey Bawa Gardens
6. Indulge in Sri Lankan food
