Sri Lanka is a tear-drop shaped island in the Indian Ocean that contains all the hallmarks of a tropical paradise. The island’s golden sandy beaches couldn’t look more stereotypically, beautifully tropical while its inland features lush green hills, waterfalls and tea plantations.
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.
