Sri Lanka or Ceylon is an enchanting tropical island in the Indian Ocean with golden, sandy beaches, exotic wildlife, rolling hills, tea plantations, colonial towns and friendly people. The traditional greeting, Ayu Bowan – “wishing you a long life” – is testament to this.
Distinctive Buddhist dagobas or stupas dot the plains and hills. Some of Asia’s oldest legends and fables are set here and the island has a long history of contact with foreign merchants and powers. Buddhist, Tamil, Roman, Arab, Portuguese, Dutch and British influences can all be seen in Sri Lanka’s fascinating cultural kaleidoscope.
Relatively small size belies its enormously varied landscape; from dense jungles – home to shy leopards and wild elephants – to empty golden beaches; from monasteries and temples peopled by saffron-clad monks to cool, misty mountains contoured with tea and dotted with the bright saris of pickers.
Choose from colonial history, the legacy of the Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa, the ancient cities of Polonnaruwa, Dambulla and Anuradhapura- which form the Cultural Triangle – the old capital of Kandy and the hill station of Nuwara Eliya. Sri Lankans are incredibly warm and friendly, and bright smiles are everywhere – don’t be surprised if a stranger invites you home for tea or to a family meal – it’s quite normal! One of the best things about holidays to Sri Lanka is that, due to its small size nothing is very far from anything else; it is possible to spend the morning in the hills watching the tea pickers, the afternoon at an ancient Buddhist temple and the evening eating seafood beside a romantic sandy beach.
