The western coast is lined with beautiful coastline and lavish resorts, but that is only the beginning of what Sri Lanka has on offer to the curious traveller. Amazingly for such a small country, it is also home to eight world heritage sites, including the ruins of the Lankan Civilization in Anuradhapura and the ancient city of Polonnaruwa.
