Sri Lanka

The tropical island of Sri Lanka is rich in natural treasures and offers a vast range of landscape and cultures. The experiences are truly unique as you marvel at the unlimited beauty of this Island.

Endless beaches, timeless ruins, welcoming people, oodles of elephants, rolling surf, cheap prices, fun trains, famous tea and flavourful food, describe this teardrop shaped island. Visit the tropical climate of the coast and lowlands where dazzling white sandy beaches ring the island and surfing and whale watching are popular pastimes. Or if you’re up for adventure, you can surf and dive at world-class sites.

If you prefer a more temperate climate, head for the hills. Here you will find a milder temperature, with lush green tea plantations and rain-forested peaks, perfect for walkers and trekkers or those who just want to see it from a spectacular train ride.The old colonial powers that once ruled here, are long gone but the Portuguese, Dutch and British influences, still impact on the culture, religion, architecture and cuisine of this fascinating country.

Few places in the world offer the diversity of Sri Lanka, with towns full of temples and forts, wildlife-rich jungles, golden beaches and mist-shrouded forests and tea plantations. Add to this, the genuine hospitality of the Sri Lankan people and you are guaranteed a memorable stay.
