Gaming however is only for foreign-passport holders.
The little island is by no means a mini Vegas, but you can be assured there will never be a dull moment if you are interested in exploring the nightlife in Sri Lanka . You can dance the night away at many places, depending on the ambience and the music you are in the mood for.
