Dream World was such a magical place - and if not for Seylan Bank, I would never have been able to visit such a dream destination. I enjoyed myself on the amusement rides and other fun activities at Dream World. I felt like it was a lovely dream that I didn’t want to wake up from. We are really lucky to have got an opportunity like this. I would like to thank everyone at Seylan Bank for giving me this opportunity.”
