Description

If wisdom comes with age, then Sri Lanka is one wise island country. Dropped off the coast of India in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has more than 2,500 years of written history. Its rich history is evident in its architecture, including the 5th century Lion Rock, as well as moats and water gardens that are remnants of ancient cities. Although you’re guaranteed to get quite a bit more than your average island vacation, Sri Lanka doesn’t disappoint when it comes to what you’d expect from an island vacation. Most beach towns often become overrun and dirty causing kind of a letdown when you finally see them. But Sri Lanka remains as beautiful as it appears in pictures. Coconut palm trees line the golden sand beaches and vibrant blue water. Many beaches are protected by reefs that make smooth water, perfect for sunbathing, while other beaches are hit with big waves making them perfect for surfing. Wet tropical climate makes for beautiful landscapes which entice even more beautiful wildlife.
