24 Aug Sri Lanka Travel Guide
Welcome to Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is known as ‘The Island of Paradise’, from a rich cultural heritage to the natural beauty of landscapes spread throughout the Island. The Island caters for any budget and from singles, couples and families, with activities ranging from culinary to culture, surfing and adventure sports.
Before 1972, Sri Lanka was called Ceylon and later changed its name when Sri Lanka became a republic within the British Commonwealth.
The beautiful Island of Sri Lanka is warm and welcoming, with great food and friendly people. It is an island to explore for its history and to embrace the locals’ authentic culture and genuine hospitality.
In the short time we were here, we absolutely loved the country and cannot wait to come back and spend more time exploring the rest of this beautiful country.
