For many years Sri Lanka was not on the tourist map, until today, and it is now well and truly there. Lying between India and Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka's myriad appeals are undeniably alluring.
Sri Lanka has more Unesco World Heritage Sites, in such a small area, than anywhere else on earth and over 2000 years of culture can be discovered at the ancient sites where legendary temples boast beautiful details. But Sri Lanka is not just renowned for its ancient history; it is also home to miles and miles of beautiful beaches, and tea estates in the central hill ranges.
Sri Lanka’s wonderful landscape is invitingly lined with pure white sand. Diving, snorkelling, or just soaking up the seemingly endless warmth and sun are reward in themselves. White dagobas curving sky-ward create a starting skyline, serene carved stone Buddha’s lying in permanent silence and elephants in parades glittering in gold.
Endless beaches, ancient ruins, friendly and welcoming people, lots of elephants, cheap prices, famous tea, and delectable food, all describe Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is spectacular, it’s affordable, and it’s still often uncrowded. Now is a great time to discover it.
