Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, “resplendent isle” in Sanskrit, is a land of charm and mystery. Visitors have always marveled at its beauty: Marco Polo called it “the finest island of its size”; it is mentioned in the Ramayana as the exotic kingdom of the ten-headed villain Ravana. The teardrop-shaped island boasts jungle and mountains, endless white beaches and rolling green tea plantations. Take an SUV safari through Ude Walawe or Yala National Park to catch a glimpse of the deer, leopards, peacocks, and herds of elephants, or discover the meeting of sea and swamp at Bundala National Park, home to crocodiles and a vast array of bird species. The former Ceylon’s history is as rich as its geography: from the imposing Sigiriya rock formation to the Dutch Colonial flavour of the historic city at Galle, from Sri Lankans’ fervent Buddhism to their passion for cricket, the island is a mosaic of cultural influences. Discover a vivid local market selling bright cloths and exotic spices, wander along an isolated beach under coconut palms, or relax in the luxury of an exclusive hotel.
