Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) is an island located in the Indian Ocean. Sri Lanka has more than 18 million people and speaks three languages: English, Tamil or Sinhala. Here you can find all the attractions of the East on one small island: sea beaches abound with coconut trees, ancient temples, tropical landscapes and rice fields, and small pastoral towns built in English style on the banks of lakes.
You can rarely travel anywhere along the coast without bumping upon a stunning stretch of sand, and many of them deserted!
In addition, there are also quite several nature reserves, with rare species of flowers and animals. Among the known sites of Sri Lanka is the Temple of Dambulla, where dozens of statues of Buddha and the picturesque city of Kennedy, with a large and impressive botanical garden and temple where the Buddha’s teeth are believed to be kept.
You can visit the holy city of Anuradhapura, and in Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka’s tallest city, not far from Sri Lanka’s famous tea plantations, from which they produce the ceylon tea, which is exported all over the world.
Sri Lanka is ideal for water sport like diving, snorkeling, kiting and surfing.
