Partner and I are hoping to fly out to Sri lanka on Dec 25th arriving 26th for two weeks. Been thinking that for our first trip unawatuna would be a good base, as we would like to see Galle and Mirissa. As it is xmas any tips for a place to stay don't mind beach or inland within walking distance. We have been to Goa many times and just wondering if costs for food etc are similar.
Also what currency is the best to take,
