With a deep cultural history and eight Unesco World Heritage Sites, it’s safe to say that Sri Lanka is like a treasure trove of discoveries. The Sri Lankan people are renowned for their welcoming and inviting nature, making each moment you spend there immensely enjoyable. Bask in the glorious tropical sunshine and enjoy the incredible national cuisine of curries and sweet desserts, but don’t forget to brush up on your knowledge of the country’s intriguing heritage.
If you’re looking for a more active holiday, why not try a spot of surfing at Arugam Bay on the east coast? It’s an up and coming surf hotspot that’s massively popular with the locals. For something a little different, you might try knuckle-clenching white water rafting in Kitulgala. Or, whilst you’re in Arugam Bay, you could enjoy a six-hour trip to the Yala West National Park where, if you’re lucky, you’ll spot leopards in their natural habitat.
