Amazing first time experience in Asia

Overall 10

I had an amazing 2 month backpacking and volunteering thru Sri Lanka.
From day 1 I knew I would fall in love with the country. Srilankans are kind, amicable, very polite and curious about foreigners. It is a Budhist country which makes it a very noble one.
From my arrival to my departure I learnt something new every single day. I had the opportunity of both backpacking and volunteering. I traveled to the beach of Ambalangoda and volunteered with the turtle conservation program. I also volunteered in Kandy teaching english to young monks and assisting in an orphanage.
The staff are all amazing and always ready to help and guide us through everything. The accommodation is simple but clean and spacious. The country's culture can be shocking and intimidating but in a good way. You get to see the world through the eyes of a completely different civilization.
My time there was full of purpose and meaning. Volunteering for orphan children or teaching monks meant learning both for them but I also learnt a lot about myself.
I didn't want to leave when my time there came to an end. The happiest I have ever been, would do it all over again every single year.

How can this program be improved?

The only way it could get better is to have more and more programs for volunteers to participate on.
