Anyone been there?

I know Asians don't hate us, but don't Sri Lanka and the Madives have sizable Muslim populations?

Seems like it's 70% Buddist, and they have good relationships with Israel.

And the Chabad.

Seems like mashiach reached Sri Lanka already. We can only pray he'll reach the rest of us in the west as soon as possible. ;)

Unlikely to happen, but I've read nice things about the place.
And ex-CMB first class fares are supposed to be very cheap, although I wouldn't take advantage.

Just noticed that the TK flight to CMB includes an hour+ of a layover in MLE.
