We believe that there is nothing quite like travelling to an unbelievable new destination. The teardrop shaped island of Sri Lanka lies in the Indian Ocean just off the southern tip of India. From its golden sandy beaches, ...turquoise waters with the warm tropical climate to the misty mountains and the epic waterfalls, Sri Lanka is a year-round destination for holidaymakers seeking sun, sand, sea, hills and wild life.
The island has a rich cultural heritage that dates back to over 2,000 years, which is linked to the origins of Buddhism in the country with magnificently, constructed stupas and the ruin remains of ancient kingdoms.
Controlled from the 16th century onwards by the Portuguese, Dutch and finally the British prior to gaining full independence in 1948, the influences of colonial powers remain visible in architecture and a number of forts across the country.
