My name is Heenkenda and I am a local of Talawa, Sri Lanka. I have spent the past three years as an English teacher in my village. I am fluent in English and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I am passionate about helping the less fortunate children in my village and offer them free English lessons. I also enjoy sharing my culture and country with foreigners and I want to show you an authentic rural experience in my village.

This was most certainly an experience you would most certainly struggle to find on your own while navigating the island. Gunarathna and his wife were so hospitable and friendly. We began with a long bike ride around the local village chatting as we went about life in Sri Lanka. We also managed to visit a preschool and see some of the local children. Once we arrived back at their home we watched the preparation of a traditional Sri Lankan curry. Then we sat down and enjoyed it with Gunarathna and his family sharing stories about our lived. This was an entirely unique moment on our trip and one that we would recommend you do if you really want get deeper than just the surface beauty of the country.

This is a unique and special cycling experience Gunarathna hosts around a gorgeous rural environment. It is a very personal experience and his love of teaching English to the local children is wonderful to behold.

We genuinely enjoyed our experience with Gunarathna and can absolutely recommend it if you want to learn more about Sri Lankan culture and the daily lifes of the local people. We had interesting conversations, saw a lot of nature and the village, met a farmer family and had an amazing dinner prepared by his lovely wife. We even got to prepare string hoppers with her and learnt a lot about cooking as well.

This was such a unique and authentic experience. We were staying in Sigirya and after doing a hike in the morning we wanted to get away from the touristy area. This experience popped up on Airbnb and we decided to give it a shot and so glad we did. Gunarathna will take you around his jungle village on bikes- we saw a lot of monkeys, played with the neighborhood kids - they practiced their English with us and taught us Sri Lankan dance, and his family will make you an amazing lunch and will let you participate in the preparing/cooking. The best part of the experience was having deep conversations with him about Sri Lanka, local and global politics, the culture, etc. We really learned a lot about the country from him. If you are debating on this experience, I would say go for it and you won’t regret it. Was one of the highlights on our trip.

If you have time in Anuradhapura,strongly recommend to have this special and very unique experience, biking in the small village, to see, and to feel the way of the local people's living, you'll find out how specil they are, friendly, kind to each others. Especially Heenkenda's doing, he help the children to speck English, and give them more opportunity to the future, also show the tourists to see the different Sri Lanka, Oh, and if you are intersting to cook, you can learn how to do it as well! it makes you feel like at home, I would just say, I'll come bake to Sri Lanka for this small village one day for sure. 如果您有到Anuradhapura旅遊, 強烈建議一定要來體驗一下騎乘腳踏車遊走在斯國小鄉村的感覺, 非常特別的體驗, 可以看到在Talawa居民的生活方式, 非常純真, 非常和善。Heenkenda是個非常有想法且遠見的人, 他在當地教小朋友們英文, 也邀請許多外國朋友一起來做體驗, 希望帶給孩子們學習的樂趣。如果剛好您對斯國食物&烹飪有興趣, 還可以親自體驗how to cook!在Talawa一整天感覺上就是在自己的家, 由於這趟體驗, 讓我看到更不一樣的斯國以及更親近當地朋友們, 一定會再次回到這純樸的小村莊的!
