"My name is Dushan, but everyone just calls me Platy. I was born in 1983, married with Sonali. My wife is working for the Government. My daughter Thinuri was born in 2013. I am a practicing Buddhist from Kandy, the world heritage city.

In 2002 I started my hospitality career with a diploma from the Ceylon Hotel School & School of Tourism. I worked for 7 years in the guest service sector in Sri Lanka and abroad in the United Arab Emirates.

I am a tourist-driver for more than 5 years. I have a lot of experience in driving through Sri Lanka and I know all interesting and secret places in my country. It would be my pleasure to be your personal guide to Sri Lanka!"
