MORE INFO ABOUT SRI LANKA
A teardrop in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka promises a lifetime of adventures. There’s a fly-and-flop beach break here if you want it, but the pull of safari drives, tea plantation tours and mountain-top temples will surely be too strong.
The largest city and point of entry for most is Colombo. Though many leave quickly for more rural landscapes, there’s plenty of cultural attractions here to merit a stay (scale the giant Lotus Tower and visit the National Museum) plus a burgeoning gastronomic scene.
