Why Sri Lanka?

From the mysterious hilltop gardens of Sigiriya to the ancient temples of Polonnaruwa, there are cultural treasures in generous measure to be explored here. If you’re seeking history and culture, Sri Lanka is one of your best options.

In short, this is a destination offering epic landscapes, rich culture and beautiful beaches in equal measure.
