Aside from its beauty- this country boasts of a rich history- there are many archaeological and historic sites, including the spectacular rock fortress ‘Sigiriya’. Few places in the world have so many UNESCO World Heritage Sites (eight) packed into such a small area.
Sri Lanka also offers you amazing wildlife. It’s know that it has nearly 433 different species, and if you care to go on a safari you’re bound to see an elephant, leopard or any of the other 91 species of mammal found there. But if you want to escape from tropical climate of the coast- the hills, with their temperate climate will be perfect…the view will be lush and green all in the comfort of a spectacular train ride.
And then there are the beaches. Dazzlingly white and often untouched, they surround the entire island. And if that doesn’t satisfy you- surfing and diving through crystal clear water, often in seclusion.
Sri Lanka is perfect for anyone wanting a good break from a hectic lifestyle and to give them a chance to renew themselves.
