Sri Lanka Travel Guide
Paradise is still the most commonly used word to describe Sri Lanka – a lush, tropical island of golden beaches and brilliant blue waters. While the vegetation of the coastal belt is lush and dramatic, and the mountainous areas of the interior are spectacular. Home to six world heritage sites: Galle, Kandy, Sigiriya, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruva, and Dambulla cave temples, and many more breathtaking locations, the country has no shortage of beautiful awe-inspiring spots, natural, historic and cultural, each more picture perfect than the next.
From soulful Buddhist monasteries and exotic locations, Sri Lanka is also the world’s second largest exporter of tea. All these highlights rolled into one, the island nation of Sri Lanka is nothing short of magnificent.
