Exotic Holidays managing director Rahul Sharma says the emphasis, as usual with the company’s educationals, was to highlight the destination and local culture rather than just cram in hotel inspections. ‘Highlights included seeing so many wild elephants in one place in Minneriya National Park and sampling the gastronomy with its variety of dishes and awesome flavours,’ says Sharma. As well as Minneriya, the famil visited iconic sites such as the Lion Rock in Sigiriya, the medieval city of Polonnaruwa, Kandy, Galle and Colombo.
