SRI LANKA LUXURY TRAVEL
Sri Lanka, is an island country in South Asia, located in the Indian Ocean, southeast of India and northeast of the Maldives. It has a rich cultural heritage that dates back over 2’000 years which is linked to the origins of Buddhism with magnificently constructed stupas and the remains of ancient kingdoms.
With golden sandy beaches, azure blue waters, welcoming people, warm tropical climate, famous tea and flavorful food, Sri Lanka is a year-round destination for travelers seeking sun, sand and sea, but also ancient cultural places to visit.
Today, Sri Lanka is for many still quite an undiscovered country. However, this is changing as the country becomes quickly a popular tourist destination with more and more people finding out its many charms. Lying between the more trodden parts of India and Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka’s history, culture and natural beauty are undeniably alluring. It is a place you most probably haven’t been yet, but that you should definitely visit. Few places have as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites packed into such as small area; there are ancient sites where legendary temples can be discovered, sheltered in caves or perched on prominent peaks. Even the wildlife is impressive: there are leopards, elephants, water buffaloes, many species of birds and a passel of primates.
Sri Lanka might also be called the Island of Rice and Curry. Using local fruits such as coconut and jackfruits, fresh seafood and plenty of spices, Sri Lankan cuisine delivers an incredible abundance of delicious meals such as the sour fish curry, chicken curry, dhal curry, and even green jackfruit curry. A definite must-try when discovering the region.
Because the country is relatively small, everything is easy to visit and distances are short: discover a beach, meditate in a 200-year-old temple, exchange smiles with local villagers, marvel at the flora, wander past colonial gems in Colombo, try a curry, and stand awestruck by the sight of hundreds of elephants gathering together. Sri Lanka is a spectacular place to visit, offering a variety of sight-seeing and ample activities.
