Introducing Vavuniya

Virtually all transport to and from the north funnels through energetically bustling Vavuniya (vow-nya). It makes sense to stay here overnight to get an early start on the cross-Vanni trip to Jaffna. Although there are no real sights, an afternoon here isn’t unpleasant and the local people are charmingly hospitable.
