Possible move to Sri Lanka (Colombo)

Hi there,

I have a close friend who is thinking of moving to southern Sri Lanka in May with his wife and 2 year old child. However his wife is worried about the healthcare and playgroup scene there. From the information being circulated it appears that Colombo has all these amenities and activities but what is the situation in places such as Galle, for instance.

Any information to better understand the expat lifestyle in Sri Lanka but focusing on southern living in particular, would be much appreciated. my wife will not be working so should the south not offer much in the way of expats, what in your opinion would be the possibility of being based in Colombo and commuting to Galle.

Many thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
Des Riordan
