“India’s teardrop” has had its share of heartaches over a history stretching back millennia, but today travel to Sri Lanka is quickly increasing as people re-discover this Indian Ocean gem. There are eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites here—an impressive number considering the size of the country—and a truly remarkable mix of landscapes.
Slightly larger than the state of West Virginia, the island offers a dazzling variety of experiences: a combination of soothing sea breezes and towering ruins, flashes of vibrant culture and echoes of its many-layered history. Sri Lanka beaches feature brilliant white sands studded with palms, while the lush hill country boasts rainforest-covered peaks. As you roam the buzzing village markets, peruse the colorful, fresh ingredients that might be a part of the pleasant and piquant meal you enjoy that evening.
