Introducing Tissamaharama

Usually called Tissa, the busy town of Tissamaharama is surrounded by rice paddies that are dotted with ancient temples. Yala National Park is the main reason most visitors come to Tissa, so there are plenty of ‘safari’ touts lurking at guesthouses and bus stops, and everybody else trying to get their cut of the safari business.
