Designated prayer facilities at Hundungoda Tea Estate will not be available for Muslim visitors but it is possible to request for a private area to make use of during prayer times.

For more dining options, Muslim travellers can visit some of the prominent Halal restaurants in Galle such as the Crêpe-ology Restaurant and the Indian Hut which are both located within the Galle Fort.
If you’re not familiar with the term “glamping”, fear not – you’re not alone. The first time I heard the word “glamping” I didn’t know what it meant. Clearly I’m not following the trend. When I looked into it though, I realised it was exactly the kind of thing I enjoyed – being one with nature minus all the icky stuff: the heat, bugs, and make-shift bathrooms! Glamping is basically the words ‘glamorous camping’ put together. And who wouldn’t like some of that? via GIPHY We scoured all the glamping spots we could find in Asia to come up with these top 10. They have adventure, relaxation, the modern comforts that you are used to, and all the nature you want to be a part of.
