Matara is a city located by the beautiful beach, thus making the air salty. You can feel it on your skin the salt and the hot sun making the irritable sensation when you are outside. This may be the cause for people showing somewhat harsh behavior compared with other cities. But when you stay few days you just find yourself getting along very well in this uncommon experience.

Matara is in the south of Sri Lanka. And my city is beautiful with a wonderful beach and good people. You will find a calm and quiet environment, which you’ll love for sure. And make sure to ring your sunscreen and sunglasses if you are planning to come for a vacation.
