The capital of the Northern Province, Jaffna is an 8 hour drive away from Colombo, yet the long and picturesque drive is well worth it to explore this memorable city filled with history, natural beauty, lively culture and flavorful cuisine. With the end of a 30 year civil war, Jaffna now warmly welcomes tourists and has become a must-see Sri Lankan tourist attraction. The Jaffna cuisine is quite different from other places in Sri Lanka as it has a lot of heat and spice in the tastes and mainly focuses on sea food. Jaffna, having a very simple and quite night life, is ideal to have a night time scroll while enjoying the famous Rio Ice Cream that contrasts highly from spicy food.
