A land filled with all the gifts of nature, ancient culture and heritage going back to 2500 years, and the vivid diversity of attractions makes Sri Lanka one of the most sought after and popular destinations for a perfect traveller.  

For a perfect beach holiday, Sri Lanka has a golden coastline which spreads continuously along the Southern and Northern coasts, where you can relax in the palm fringed beaches while sipping a king coconut and surf at Arugmbay .

Up in the hill country one can enjoy the soft, cool, breeze drifting through your hotel room window in Nuwaraeliya, whilst enjoying a hot cup of freshly brewed, world renowned Ceylon tea.

As an adventure tourism destination, Sri Lanka has gained its popularity via offering tourists an experience worth cherishing by hiking, trekking and other adventure activities in areas like Horton Plains and Riverston,water rafting in Kitulgala, and Dolphin watching in Mirissa and Kalpitiya.

Home to 8 UNESCO world Heritage sites, Sri Lanka is an incredible destination to explore. Sri Lanka Tourism managed to secure its place on the global map by receiving the ‘’Leading Adventure Tourism Destination of the Year’’ award recently, at the World Travel Awards 2018, held in Hong Kong.

Recently, Sri Lanka was also selected as the number one destination to travel in 2019 by the Lonely Planet magazine, which was a hallmark in Sri Lanka’s history as a leading travel destination.
