“Pearl of the Indian Ocean,” the island of Sri Lanka lies off the southern tip of India, just three degrees north of the Equator, meaning the weather is constantly hot and tropical and even in the brief monsoon season there is a daily spell of sunshine.
India’s teardrop is a fertile paradise of tropical forest, diverse landscapes and high biodiversity. Home to many National Parks teaming with birdlife and wildlife, opportunities for leopard spotting, elephant trekking or hiking mountainous peaks. The South-West coast offers hundreds of miles of the world’s most beautiful palm-fringed beaches and on-the-water activities. Rolling coastal plains meet rising lush mountains in the centre of the island where Sri Lanka’s famous tea plantations can be found.
With many different religions, ethnicities and languages, Sri Lanka is thriving with history and culture spanning close to 3,000 years. Boasting seven World Heritage Sites listed by UNESCO, ranging from sacred cities, palaces and cliff-top citadels to lakeside colonial strongholds and fortified coastal towns; “the nation of smiling people” is a welcoming holiday destination.
