Voted as one of the best tourist destinations in the world, Sri Lanka is a tropical haven in the Indian Ocean that is inhabited by one of the oldest and most hospitable civilizations on earth. It is a year round destination packed with history, culture, heritage, breathtaking scenery and warm welcoming people. Home to many UNESCO world heritage sites and dotted by ancient cities over a 1000 years old yet boasting some of the finest resorts in this part of the world, Sri Lanka is a holiday destination that only gets better and more exciting with every time you visit, and once you experience its treasures both environmental and human, you will be back.
Intrigue and excitement is abundant wherever you look.
