Destinations / Sri Lanka

Endless sun kissed beaches, timeless ruins, rolling surf, undulating hills, gushing waterfalls, oodles of wildlife, flavorful food and welcoming people- this is Sri Lanka, one of Asia’s richest tropical paradises. Located just below India, this little exotic island abounds with wonderful discoveries for any tourist. Be it a journey of exploring the wilderness, an Ayurvedic wellness holiday, a relaxing getaway in the sun soaked beaches, or even that quick business trip, there is something for everyone.

Considered a lost paradise by many a globe trotter, scores of travelers have passed overhead on their way to someplace else, but years of war and challenges such as tsunamis have kept Sri Lanka off many itineraries. But now Sri Lanka has cemented its place as a firm favourite among holiday goers. From legendary temples and ancient sites that echo the 2000-plus years of rich culture and rainforested peaks, to myriads of national parks and nature reserves that are home to endangered and endemic species, few locations have as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites packed into such a small compact area as Sri Lanka.

Because of its small size, distances are short and make exploring and experiencing easier. Witness the crumbling ruins of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, be awestruck by the sight of hundreds of majestic elephants gathering in Minneriya, revel in one of the pristine beaches that ring the island, meditate in one of the magical cave temples in Dambulla, soak in the colonial charm of Galle, climb the majestic 5th century Sigiriya Rock Fortress, surf the waves of Arugam Bay, snorkel in Kalpitiya, relax in the cool climes of the hill country and go shopping in the vibrant streets of Colombo; when it comes to Sri Lanka, it is a veritable treasure trove where the choices never end.
