Sri Lanka

Overview

  • Flight Time: 11 Hours
  • Time Zone: UTC +5:30
  • Best Time to Travel: November - April

Holidays to Sri Lanka are perfect for those who like their beach-lazing with a side order of dazzling culture. Hanging like a teardrop off the Southeast coast of India, this compact country packs in an incredible array of sights - not least its footprint-free sands, backed by slender palms and washed by bath-warm sapphire seas.

Sri Lanka is blessed with a 1,330km coastline comprised of white sandy beaches, rocky bays and lined with coconut palms. The tranquil, sapphire-blue waters (non-monsoon period) of the Indian Ocean have a perfect average temperature of 27 degrees. Diving and snorkelling are popular as coral reefs encircle the island.

Sri Lanka contains an astonishing seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites within its compact shores. The most intriguing and popular World Heritage site is Sigiriya dubbed "the eighth wonder of the world". The rock face was covered with sensual frescoes of celestial maidens, described as the worlds largest picture galleries. A World Heritage Site of a different era is the Dutch Fort of Galle, considered the best preserved fort in South Asia. With 14 massive bastons, a grid system of streets and some original Dutch bungalows, the fort bustles with life as it did when Galle was the main passenger port. It is one of the most unique attractions in Sri Lanka.
