Sri Lanka is a fantastic holiday destination. It is the exotic, tropical teardrop island at the toe of India. There is so much to see and do such as exploring mystical ancient cities, lush national parks, jungle and tea planations. There are also precious stones and miles of palm-fringed sandy beaches. It is one of the most beautiful and scenically interesting islands in the world. Costs are cheap and the people very hospitable indeed.

Holidays to Sri Lanka

Mystical Sri Lanka offers a wealth of culture and history. Visit the romantic and magnificient Dambulla Rock Temple famous for its beautiful murals, inscriptions and statues. Your holiday abroad to Srik Lanka must include an adventure to the ancient capital, Anuradhapura, which houses the immense dagabas Buddhist Shrines which date back to 380 BC.

If you can bear the early start, dawn rising over the Buddha at Aukana, the tallest Buddha statue in Sri Lanka, is a truly moving adventure. More holiday ideas to Sri Lanka should include Polonnaruwa which is another cultural must do. Here you can see the statues of Lord Buddha at Gal Vihara, carved from the rockface in the 12th century BC, together with the ancient ruins of the Royal Palace.

Sri Lanka is famous for its elephants and the renowned Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage is more than worth a few hours of your time. It's no ordinary safari park as the orphanage is home for about 60 elephants, many of which are baby elephants found, abandoned or orphaned in the wild. They are being cared, fed and trained by the wild life authorities.

There are even sanctuaries where you can wash elephants in the river and feed them with local fruit and vegetables. You don't know the meaining of a "good wash" until you have scrubbed an elephant with half a coconut shell!

But it's not just nature and culture on offer in Sri Lanka. There are many ways to have fun adventures in the sun and Sri Lanka's wide array of watersport options at the south-west beach resorts provide plenty of pleasure.

Take a short boat trip off-shore to dive over the coral reefs, grab a snorkel and mask to paddle your way through tropical fish, or take advantage of the strong breezes on the west coast from December to March to windsurf. If speed is more your thing then there are many jetski and waterski companies, particularly at Bentota, ready to fuel your adrenaline!

Sri Lanka is affordable with a wide range of hotels, resorts and other accommodation on offer. Whether you are looking for a family holiday or a romatic holiday to Sri Lanka our Sri Lanka experts can help you plan your perfect trip. Just enter your details on the right.
