Sri Lanka is a compact island nation that packs a serious punch: palm-studded white sand beaches, virgin rainforest and lush forested highlands, World Heritage sites and ancient cave-temples, vibrant culture, incredible food, constant festivals and a deeply spiritual and welcoming people.
Visit the sacred city of Kandy for ancient architecture and Buddhist relics; see magnificent palaces, monasteries and the sacred Bodhi tree in Anuradhapura; and walk among temples, tombs and monuments in the ancient city of Polonnaruwa.
Savour the spicy, aromatic flavours of Sri Lankan cuisine; shop for colourful textiles, leatherwork and handicrafts in busy markets; and unwind among the coconut palms on Sri Lanka's endless tropical beaches.
Explore the lush forests, rock-top temples and sacred peaks of the Central Highlands; journey by bike through the scenic tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya; and head to the Yala National Park to see exotic wildlife including the majestic Sri Lankan elephant.
Marvel at the lion-shaped palace of Sigiriya, dramatically perched atop a colossal rock; explore the 2,300-year-old Buddhist cave-temples of Damballa; canoe down the jungle-clad Kalu River; and hike the 5,500 steps to the top of Adam's Peak, Sri Lanka's holiest mountain.
