The tropical island nation of Sri Lanka has long excited travellers as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of the big cities of India and the tourist beaches of Thailand, when planning a visit to South East Asia. With a history dating back to the birth of time, the country offers a picturesque getaway where the original soul of Buddhism still flourishes and where nature’s beauty remains abundant and unspoilt.
Few places in the world can offer the traveller such a remarkable combination of stunning landscapes, pristine beaches, captivating cultural heritage and unique experiences within such a compact location. After a relaxing 3 week vacation over the Christmas holidays, I was hooked. Coastline, tea estates, wildlife, botanical gardens, waterfalls and more dot the landscape of this abundant yet small country. If you think you’ve done South East Asia after a trip to Phuket, you are sorely mistaken.
I’ve highlighted some photos from my trip. Going to Sri Lanka? Message me if you’d like any more information or have any questions about travelling in the country. Enjoy!
