Overall Guide : Jaffna recovers from ethnic conflict & people r not friendly because of their bitter experience & cant expect friendship & hospitality now as we experienced in other areas. Restaurants & hotels r newly emerged therefore expensive & services r not... more in expected level but time will improve these. I m very proud of them because they stand on their own. All must visit once in their lifetime.

Overall Guide : Did a three day Jaffna trip june. To move around, you can rent a scooter easily. Top destinations are delft, nanativu, point pedro. I got support from a local trip organiser 'srilankaklick.com'. They organise tailored trips for reasonable rates. They... more gave me a lot of background information. My 3 days visit was a full success.
Not to be missed Nanaitivu , Delf , Point Pedro
