Sri Lankan Smile….
Sri Lanka is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural country, situated in Indian Ocean. Whatever their situation in society, the people of Sri Lanka possess a warm and friendly nature reflected in persistent smiling faces.
Sri Lankans are known for always smiling. Most of the times, they are smiling while wobbling. This is one of the very common Sri Lankan personality traits which have been passed through from generation to generations. Their generosity with a smile is seen throughout the island, in how people welcome you into their home, always serve you a meal and offer to help in any way. The people, when you meet them, are very welcoming, friendly and love to help – even when you don’t ask for it.
People in Sri Lanka are very friendly and helpful too. They will always smile at you, on the street, in the shops, in the tuk-tuks and buses too. Most people are genuinely interested in how you are doing and where you are going.
Sri Lankans are generally welcoming and “Sri Lankan Smile” is their tradition and a heritage.
