Sri Lanka is more than tea, seafood to die for, tropical beaches and ancient culture

 

If you don’t already know that Sri Lanka is one of this year’s hottest global tourist destinations, you really haven’t been paying attention.

Those who have already had a heady taste of our Paradise island will know we are much more than tea, seafood to die for, tropical beaches and ancient culture.

For those who haven’t, here’s a quick appetiser from Tourism4You, which concludes: “Sri Lanka may be small, but the tourism possibilities seem to be endless.”

“Sri Lanka’s attributes are many. Few places have as many Unesco World Heritage Sites (eight) packed into such a small area. Its 2,000-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites filled with mystery.

“When you’re ready to escape the tropical climate of the coast and lowlands, head for the hills, which are verdant, virescent and virally infectious with allure.

“And then there are the beaches. Dazzlingly white and all so often untrod, they ring the island so that no matter where you go, you’ll be near a sandy gem.”
