Best time to visit Sri Lanka

There’s this interesting thing about this Island country that it got two monsoon seasons, so keeping this in mind is good to go. On each side of the island, this monsoon takes turn which affects the east and north regions where the sun shines in the south and west regions and vice versa.
The best time to visit Sri Lanka depends on which part of the country you are planning to visit.
If you plan to visit the center of the country to explore the cultural triangle and the magnificent south coast beaches and west coast, then you can visit between October and March.
To explore the amazing east and the north coast, April to September is the most suitable time.
