Director - Travel Designer
“ Tourism is a vast industry, and the guests come here to enjoy it. I’m in my early 40s and I too enjoy my life to the fullest. I’m so privileged to share what I have learned about culture, wildlife, beaches, food, birds, and most importantly the history of Sri Lanka.”
Gayan started his work in the travel industry over 23 years ago as a Tourist Driver. After a few years, he went to live and work in Australia for some time. There he learned to speak the English language well and learned a lot about Western customs and ways of life, which has given him a major advantage in working with foreign visitors to Sri Lanka when he returned to his beloved Sri Lanka and started SriLankan Pearl. ”
“ In the past years, I have traveled to almost every part of Sri Lanka. The stunning views, culture, nature, food, and colors are some of the unique facts to keep me staying. I decided to share my love for Sri Lanka with travelers from around the world giving them an unforgettable experience in Sri Lanka!”
Esther was born in The Netherlands and through her love for and interest in Sri Lanka, she started to promote (traveling to) Sri Lanka to her large network, which resulted in being a Travel Consultant and Travel Designer at SriLankan Pearl. ”
