Your Destination

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a lush, tropical island paradise, known to ancient Greek mariners as Taprobane. Arab traders called it Serendib – hence the word "serendipity", meaning discovery by happy accident. It was famously described by Marco Polo as "undoubtedly the finest island of its size in the world". With fabulously flavoursome food and a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, Sri Lanka promises to be one of your best-loved travel destinations.

This is an environmentally diverse country, with nine World Heritage Sites (the oldest dating back to the 3rd Century BC), 86 species of mammals (including elephants and leopards), more than 400 bird species, a colourful array of flowering plants and trees, a Hill Country famous for tea, 14 National Parks and an Indian Ocean coastline boasting palm-fringed and sandy tropical beaches.
