Visit a temple
Chances are if you have come on a long haul flight to Sri Lanka so you may end up waking at a random hour. Sri Lanka is surrounded by ancient Buddhist temples, spice plantations and coconut groves. It is quite magical in the early hours of the morning to wander barefoot in a temple, breath the incense and smell of the land, hear the chanting of morning prayer and listen to the sound of the local wildlife preparing for the day. Watch the sun rise and then go surfing, it doesn’t get better than that.
