Sri Lanka has a recorded history that spans back 3000 years. Like its massive neighbour India Sri Lanka is a diverse country, home to many religions, ethnicities and languages. It is also still blessed with a variety of wildlife that has survived alongside this human civilization, on this small island for so many years. Today it offers tourists a diverse experience from the modern city of Colombo with its sky scrapers to national parks teeming with elephants and religious and cultural buildings of multiple origins.
Enjoy whale watching off the beautiful coast. Visit the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, the islands major conservation project. Visit Colombo, Sri Lanka’s commercial hub, which offers a fantastic shopping experience.
