'How can you not love this country?! A holiday in Sri Lanka delivers on so many levels'

Sri Lanka Holidays

Although recent peace has opened up the entire 'island of serendipity' to visitors, tourism here remains under-subscribed, leaving you to enjoy your Sri Lanka holiday in blissful serenity. Undeveloped beach paradises, a startlingly rich cultural heritage, a wide variety of tropical wildlife and adventure experiences... as well as warmly welcoming people and irresistible cuisine - but without any teaming hordes? Now is definitely the time to go.

With the whole of Sri Lanka now open to exploration, year-round sunshine is a reality, while beach lovers and adventurers alike will appreciate the combination of relaxing coastline and thrilling jungle interior. Any package tourists - a dirty phrase, in our book! - that do turn up head straight for the famed beaches on the south coast, and flop out for two weeks. Meanwhile, those in the know insist on a number of choice stops in their itinerary. Beautiful Galle, the fortified Colonial capital of the Southern Province, should be on any first time visitor's list. Six other World Heritage sites include some of the most remarkable ancient engineering you'll ever see, and some of the largest Buddhist temples ever built.

Wildlife enthusiasts revel in the 14 National Parks, with their populations of leopards, Asian elephants, langurs and lorises, amongst a huge list of species. There's even a small rainforest biosphere, now protected by UNESCO. Wander up into the green hills to explore picturesque tea estates, mountain ranges, Buddhist pilgrim sites, and the jungle-clad city of Kandy, where you can enjoy the old antique shops and a great selection of restaurants.
