Hambantota

Over View

During the last decade or so the city of Hambantota got a big face lift due to political affiliations and as a result it appears to be like a gigantic modern city with a maze of highways leading mostly to nowhere in particular, although a major plan had been proposed which was not to be completed. Although very big in proportions, Hambantota unfortunately has not taken giant steps in developing itself to a fully-fledged metropolis with a mammoth population to inhabit the city. Hambantota is sometimes used as a base for visits to Bundala National Park by those who can afford to stay at some of the plush hotels within the city limits. If you’re on a budget, press on northwards to Tissamaharama.
