Hi there,

Dunno about Thai weather then. Lankan weather is actually West Monsoon season which means quite good for tourism, the 2nd best season of the year. Nice sunny mornings (generally) and some cloud build-up starting in the afternoon.

Elephants plenty in Lanka. Either Millennium Foundation or Elephant Orphanage in Pinawela (about 2-3 hours from the closest coastal resorts) suits your programme perfectly!

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
