VESAK FULL MOON POYA DAY
Sometimes Vesak is called Buddha’s Birthday, and other times, it is called simply Buddha Day. The latter is probably more accurate since the day celebrates everything about Buddha, including his birth, enlightenment (called nirvana), and his death, rather than just his birth.Don’t miss the lights display in Colombo. People flood into the capital city from all over Sri Lanka to witness the massive, glittering thorana light displays. They also come because the lanterns, made of coloured paper and set on bamboo frames, are extremely numerous and well done. This stems largely from the fact that Colombo has a Vesak lantern contest with prizes given out. The sight is dazzling to say the least.
ENCOUNTER THE WILDLIFE?
As every month in Sri Lanka, most National Park all around can be visit, following the season Wasgamuwa, Yala, Wilpattu, Galoya, Angamedilla, Kumana National Parks are at their best.
To be able to venture into the sea and encounter magnificent Dolphins as well as blue & sperm whales, Trincomale/Nilaveli (East side) will be the best port to depart on early morning cruises
