  • A very interesting place. A man in a 3-generation snake catcher. Show with her son as poisonous snakes and non-poisonous, which can hold and photograph. 800 rupees per person. We really liked it. Time 30-40 minutes.

  • Had a rest in Unawatuna, a guy offered to go on a scooter at the snake farm in Matar. I initially twisted nose (as was the snake farm in Thailand), saying it is not worth the effort of the mole, but nothing persuaded-drove. Got from Unawatuna the scooter 50 minutes. The fact that we waited there, cannot be compared with other serpent-farms: the owner of the snakes permitted to touch the snake, fotkatsja with them, prompted what picture will be more interesting, very interesting about snakes. Price 1000 ruppij. It's worth it, we have received positive emotions, got the thrill of (but still safe, as you can not only touch the poisonous snakes) and happily went to travel further.

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.
