Welcome to the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’, teeming with palm-studded golden beaches, scenic landscapes, sacred sites and beautiful citadels steeped in spirituality. With a heady mix of gracious people, intriguing ruins and some of the most exotic, spice-infused cuisine in the world, Sri Lanka’s almost tangible vibrancy and charm will remain with you long after you leave.
Located just under the Indian subcontinent and to the South West of the Bay of Bengal, the island of Sri Lanka remains a hidden gem often overlooked by holidaymakers. As an integral stop along ancient trade routes, the British, Portuguese and Dutch influence in much of the country’s culture and splendid colonial buildings is unmistakable. Explore sprawling tea plantations, play golf, take in the hectic buzz of Colombo, savour succulent curries and immerse in the sights and sounds of hypnotically colourful religious pageantry, as thousands of pilgrims descend on the island. With eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, pockets of national parks where elephants and buffalo roam freely, as well as quaint fishing villages, fast-paced cities and beautiful golden beaches, few places boast so much within so little geographical space.
