Sri Lanka’s strategic placement on the world map has meant that travellers from around the world have made their way to our golden beaches for centuries. In modern times we are vying to reach the former glory of being a hub for travellers, both business and leisure.Uniquely blessed with a multitude of experiences within a short land mass, Sri Lanka boasts the ability to present the chilly air of the mountains or the tropical heat of the coast, go trekking or diving underwater, all in one paradise isle.
