Holidays to Sri Lanka

Holidays in Sri Lanka can be an experience unlike any other. The country is located in the southern portion of the Indian peninsula. The Palk Strait, Gulf of Mannar and the Indian Ocean surround the country. Visitors can travel to this island nation to experience the culture, history and the beautiful weather here.

One of the things that make Sri Lanka so inviting is its long history. The country has a written record dating back 2500 years. The rich history here has made this region one of the most admired by history buffs. However, many more people travel to the area to explore the tropical countryside, where the temperatures are warm or hot throughout most of the year. You will find that there is plenty to do when you arrive no matter why you came.

Visitors often come and stay at one of the beachfront resorts that are popular in the area. Sri Lanka offers a variety of things to do for visitors including fine dining featuring both local and international cuisines, shopping and nightclubs, bars, discos and other nightlife hotspots. You will find mostly modern facilities in the beach regions of the country, especially since this is where most tourists spend the majority of their time.

Holidays to Sri Lanka offer European travellers in particular the perfect opportunity to explore an area very different from where they come from. Travellers can start by visiting the Sri Dhalada Maligawa Gardens, or the nearby Peradeniya Gardens. Visitors can learn about the ancient religions in the temples and religious facilities; religion is an important part of the history of this country. In Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, there are ancient, but well maintained, temples which you can walk through and marvel at their beauty and the history they represent.

For those who want the best beaches for holidays in Sri Lanka, visit Galle or Unawatuna. These are two of the largest public beaches with inviting waters and soft, white sand. In the northern region of the country you will also find sandy beaches and clear waters for swimming and other beach activities. Speaking of the water, visit Mirissa or take a boat from Kalpitiya to head out into the sea to watch the whales. You will find even more sea wildlife when you visit Wilpattu or Yala. Kumana is a great location for watching birds. To see the land-based wildlife spread out in front of you, choose Udawalawe where you will see a wide variety of animals, including elephants.

Sri Lanka holidays mean beach time, historic exploration and even a fun nightlife. There are many reasons to visit for the first time, or to come back repeatedly to enjoy all that this location has to offer every member of the family, young and old.
