Holidays to Sri Lanka
For a relatively small Island, there are a truly amazing variety of attractions for the visitor to see on a holiday to Sri Lanka. From the sleepless and fast developing capital, Colombo, to the ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa with their imposing Dagoba's, to the rolling tea plantations and green hills of the Hill Country region, to the well preserved national parks inhabited by elephants, leopards, crocodiles and rare birdlife, there really is something for everybody in Sri Lanka. Add to all of this the thousands of kilometres of coastline, studded with idyllic palm-lined beaches, the delicious food and the friendly, welcoming people and it is little surprise that Sri Lanka has earned itself a reputation as one of the world's best holiday destinations.
Having shrugged off its turbulent past, it is now possible to travel freely throughout the whole country, including the less visited north and east coast regions, which have some of the Island's most untouched beaches and can be the surprise highlight of a tour to Sri Lanka.
