from Colombo, Sri Lanka
Well, Sri Lanka is a country with lot of natural resources. Most of the tourists would like to go behind a particular product & see the origin of it. But I suppose most of them don't get that oppertunity due to timeliness, cost, getting cheated by uneducated/inexperienced guides & huge cost they quote.
There are some volunteers in Sri Lanka who love to assist this kind of tourists with out even charging a single cent, but need only to promote our country & its fun + secrets to the world...!
Ex. Fishing under "Ritipanna" method
Production procedure of Toddy [local liquor]
some religious activities [ie."Bali-thovil",walking
on fire,water-cutting ceremony]
Collecting & preparing of Jelly fish for export
The best way of getting info on these secrets is to getting close to a expert in particular subject area & get aware of it.Then have a visit along with him/her & fill your thirst.
This will benefited the traveler by saving time, less cost due to correct focus, improve knowledge both in theory & practical aspects...
