Lonely Planet review
The centrepiece of the town and its surrounds is the lovely Tissa Wewa (Tissa Tank), a huge man-made lake about 1.5km from the town centre. In the evening, check out the huge flocks of egrets that descend onto the trees around the lake to roost. Pleasant boat trips are possible around the lake from the Independent Jeep Association car park. Fight tooth and nail for a deal.
