We are BA.LA.MU

Transforming your mobile device into your own personal tour guide!!


BALAMU is a new mobile travel App that is revolutionizing  the way you can explore Sri Lanka, offering a symphony of sights and sounds to enrich the journey in unprecedented ways. Sri Lanka, an island nation known for its rich history, diverse landscapes, and vibrant culture, has captivated travelers for centuries. As modern technology continues to enhance the travel experience, Balamu has emerged as an invaluable tool for those looking for a deeper experience of this enchanting country. 

Stepping into Sri Lanka is like stepping into a time capsule of history. From the ancient city of Anuradhapura to the iconic Sigiriya rock fortress, the country boasts a treasure trove of historical sites. Balamu acts as a modern-day storyteller, weaving historical narratives and cultural anecdotes that breathe life into these ancient remnants. As you wander through the colossal stupas and intricate carvings, a well-designed audio guide provides context, transporting you to the era when these structures thrived. The audio guides offer the freedom to explore at your own pace. Whether you're lingering in the lush landscapes of Horton Plains or strolling along the impressive Galle Fort Ramparts, you can absorb the beauty of your surroundings without feeling rushed. Balamu acts as a patient companion, playing automatically when you reach the locations and allowing you to pause, rewind, and replay the narration as you wish, in your preferred language, ensuring an entertaining and enlightening experience.

Meet the Founder

It all started with a one-way ticket back home to Sri Lanka. After 15 years of living and working in the UK as a IT consultant in the High Fashion industry, it was time to take a step back and pause.

My passion and interests have always been in the travel industry, during my time in the UK, I was fortunate enough to travel extensively around the world, giving me crucial insights into all the options and tools available within the travel industry…. coming back to Sri Lanka was an eye opener. Sri Lanka had so much to offer as a travel destination, but was unfortunately not always presented in the best possible way.

Seeing this gap in the market and drawing from my love for Sri Lanka, my passion for travel and tourism, and my expertise in the business consulting field, I proceeded to create BALAMU: A transformational Mobile travel APP positioned to support and enhance the Sri Lankan Tourism industry.
