    Cool to have snakes draped over you for photos. ..Not too keen on seeing Cobras being kicked and stood on to get them fired up for more dramatic photos.

    The snake man announced us than the price was 800rupees per person, but after the "show". Very unhonnest. But except that these few minutes were interesting, especially the noise of the cobra. Don't expect too much.

Where to stay in Matara

A couple of hotels stand close to the train station in Matara, as well as some guesthouses located on the side streets of the Fort district. But the greatest diversity of accommodations lies down by the coast. Matara Beach has some hotels and guesthouses right on the waterfront, while Polhena Beach to the west adds sprawling resorts into the mix, as well as homestays, high-rise hotels, and eco-lodges.
