With lush green jungles, ancient temples, tropical beaches and a vibrant culture that prides itself on a tradition of warm hospitality, Sri Lanka is a welcoming and diverse country waiting to be explored.

Bursting with a rich history, Sri Lanka is home to no less than eight UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites. Each of these sites have their own unique story that make up Sri Lanka’s incredible history but it’s not just these impressive sites that make Sri Lanka such an appealing travel destination, it’s the people.

 

Visitors are welcomed with arms wide open. Connecting with the welcoming people of Sri Lanka will give you an authentic insight into the country's culture, traditions, history and way of life. Meet local restaurant operators, visit a local school, spend time with local families and share a traditional lunch together, be treated to a cultural show and traditional dance performance by the locals, board a local train, and witness the local stilt fishermen as they go about their trade. It’s in these moments that the warm hospitality of Sri Lanka shines and leaves a lasting impression on you.
