Paradise on Earth
A teardrop-shaped island cast adrift in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is filled with cultural and natural treasures. Indians, Portuguese, Dutch and British have all left their marks here, making for a delightful mix of ancient cities, monuments and grand colonial architecture. The vast and rich cultural diversity is one of Sri Lanka’s core identities. Sri Lankan culture is often reflected by the use of art, architecture, sculptures, and even spicy cuisine.
Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, has been hailed a tourism destination for centuries. The well-known explorer Marco Polo stated that Sri Lanka was the finest island in the whole world.
The little island has much to offer including world heritage sites, palm fringed coasts, rolling tea plantations, fascinating wildlife, well-preserved ruins, Ayurveda and wellness spas, and most importantly a very cozy climate.
Tourism is a fast growing sector in Sri Lanka and there are numerous hotels, guest houses, luxury boutique hotels, villas and bungalows which provide the best service for tourists.
