Like a rich, green emerald nestled in the translucent waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is an island just south of India that packs an astounding variety of options for every tourist, including eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites and 26 national parks, to visit within its modest size. Its coastline is punctuated with golden sand beaches and tall, slender palm trees. While inland the country contains a fascinating variety of landscapes ranging from lowland jungles filled with wildlife, to the misty highlands of the mountains, awash in tea plantations. For those seeking adventure, Sri Lanka ticks all the boxes. Its coastline is ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and of course beach cricket, and the cool hills around Kandy are perfect for cycling and trekking. There are so many sights to be seen, and friendly people to meet, you’ll be surprised that this country has only recently emerged on most tourists’ radars. And to top it off, you certainly won’t be going hungry with Sri Lanka boasting some of the best cuisine in the world.
