Such a vast range of attractions rarely comes as neatly packaged as on this beautiful Indian Ocean island of surprises.
There is a lot to get excited about in Sri Lanka, and it’s all packed into a relatively small island nation. Resplendent in its natural and cultural bounty, tropical climate and dramatic geography, Sri Lanka is a feast for the senses. The diversity of attractions is impressive, distances are manageable and sights are plenty, so you can pack a lot into a trip. Contrast the ruined spiritual capital of Anuradhapura with the vibrant city of Kandy. Mix in some beach time to recharge, then get your nature fix hiking in the hill country. Complete your Sri Lankan experience with some wildlife watching in one of the many national parks. For a holiday with a different adventure every day, this could be your dream destination.
