Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, otherwise known as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’ is the perfect place for an island getaway.

Lying off the southern tip of India, the tropical island of Sri Lanka has attracted visitors for centuries with its beautiful secluded beaches and famous Ritipanna stilt fishermen.

The island offers stunning scenery including lush rainforests, mist-draped mountain ranges, huge tea plantations and immense rock formations. The train ride through the heart of the island between Ella to Kandy is known as the world’s most beautiful rail journey.

Sri Lanka also has plenty to keep cultural vultures occupied. Marvel at the ancient city of Anuradhapura and the rock fortress of Sigiriya. A must-see is the famous Temple of the Sacred Tooth in Kandy which is said to contain one of the most important relics in Buddhism.

Wildlife enthusiast will discover elephants roaming in the wild, witness native creatures such as sambar deer and sloth bears in their natural habitat and can go in search of the elusive Sri Lankan leopard.

If it’s luxury you’re after, the idyllic island of Sri Lanka offers a range of exclusive and stylish resorts with ever amenity imaginable, as well as charming and hospitable local people who go out of their way to make visitors feel welcome.
