Sri Lanka is a magical place full of surprises! Located in the Indian Ocean, this country is less than half the size of the United Kingdom yet is packed with stunning landscapes, fascinating wildlife and a rich cultural heritage. Its stunning beaches, lush tea plantations and ancient ruins make it an ideal destination for an unforgettable holiday.

One interesting fact about Sri Lanka is that it has one of the oldest cultures in the world. It was renowned as early as the 4th century BCE as “Sinhala” or “Lion Island” and its archeological sites show evidence of advanced civilizations that have lived here since pre-history.

The main points of interest in Sri Lanka include pristine beaches like Unawatuna, Yala National Park where you can see wild elephants and leopards in their natural habitat, Sigiriya Rock Fortress which dates back to the 5th century CE, and the vibrant cities like Kandy, Galle and Colombo.

For those looking for something a little off-the-beaten track, why not visit Arugam Bay on the east coast? This hidden gem offers unspoiled beaches, local markets and delicious seafood, all within a few hours drive from Colombo.

No matter what kind of traveler you are, Sri Lanka has something for everyone! From its enchanting nature to its unique culture, this country is sure to make for an unforgettable experience.
