Sri Lanka also has a rich and diverse history with many fascinating places to explore. The ancient cities of Polonnaruwa, Dambulla and Anuradhapura commonly known as the Cultural Triangle. Kandy, the old capital, where the sacred tooth relic of the Buddha is enshrined or the current capital Colombo with temples, museums and galleries.. The colonial hill station of Nuwara Eliya set in acres of tea plantations or the ancient port of Galle with its distinctive Dutch influences.


From Buddhist temples to the simplest of villages, you will be warmly welcomed by these charming, hospitable people and you shouldn’t be surprised if a total stranger invites you home for tea or a family meal!

Culture, history, religion or nature, Sri Lanka will have something for you.
