Sri Lanka is a tropical nation and has a multi-cultural society with very hospitable people. There are eight UNESCO protected sited plus many ancient cities and old towns to visit on Sri Lanka vacations. It offers a wonderful selection of pristine beaches with the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean and large National Parks plus there is an abundance of wildlife to satisfy all animal lovers. For nature enthusiasts, there are many excellent botanical gardens.

Colombo is the capital and has a selection of museums and art galleries to visit including the National museum of Colombo with its historical artifacts and the National History Museum. Find time to go to Pettah Market for every kind of merchandise and the Zoological Gardens. An outstanding landmark is Galle Face Green Promenade which stretches along the Indian Ocean. Galle Fort has both Portuguese and Dutch influences. Nearby is Kalutara Temple and the Peace Pagoda, both well worth a visit on a Sri Lanka vacation.

The small tranquil town of Kandy is well known for the Temple of the Sacred Tooth which contains the tooth of Buddha smuggled into Sri Lanka by a princess in the 4th Century. It is still carried in processions which take pace each July and August. Also visit the Tea Museum, the Royal botanical Gardens in nearby Peradeniya and the Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage.


Looking to nature, Yala National Park is a wonderful wildlife sanctuary, important for the preservation of elephants and aquatic birds. One can also see leopards, deer, wild boars, monkeys, ant eaters and crocodiles.

For the archeologically inclined, it’s worth going to Polonnaruwa for its ancient ruins dating back to the 10th Century including viewing palaces and temples.

Perhaps round off a visit to Sri Lanka with a stay at one of the outstanding beach resorts to round off a rewarding stay in Sri Lanka.
