Sri Lanka has it all – a balmy tropical climate, dramatic sandy beaches backed by lush deep green forests that sway to the sound of bird song, high-altitude hill-top hideaways, a diverse array of wildlife and traditional working tea plantations. With cities and towns bursting with colour, noise and life, Sri Lanka’s proud heritage is well-preserved and enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
Pretty villages and small towns sit sprawling along the coast or hidden deep into the countryside, its varied landscape dotted with important holy sites, temples and ancient ruins waiting to be explored.
Look no further: Sri Lanka, this tiny island nation shaped like a droplet of water just below the Indian peninsula, has much to offer any passionate traveller. Don’t let its size deceive you; Sri Lanka punches above its weight when it comes to tourism.
From pristine beaches, the rocky hills and meandering lush green meadows, a rich wildlife, extensive flora and fauna and ancient culture collectively make Sri Lanka one of the MUST-VISIT places on anybody’s list!
For these reasons alone, Sri Lanka should be a destination you consider for your next trip. After many years of Civil war, Sri Lanka had fallen off the travel radar. But all that is past now, and looking at Sri Lanka as a travel destination now, well, having been closed off to the world for so long has had its plus side.
