Inbound Tours

The 'resplendent island' or Sri Lanka, off the southern tip of India, was colonised by the Portuguese, Dutch, and English. Colonial rule is still evident in the capital city's name, Colombo. Sinhalese and Tamil are Sri Lanka's two official languages, though English is widely used. The culture is greatly influenced by Buddhist and Hindu traditions; the country currently has eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

There are very few places in the world where you can experience such a variety of countryside and climates: hot sandy beaches, cool hillside terrains, lush rainforests and elephant-filled national parks. From white-water rafting in Kitulgala to tea and temples in Kandy, wildlife safaris in Yala to surfing on the south coast: there is a place and pursuit to suit everyone on this beautiful island.

The proud recipient of Lonely Planet's best place to visit in 2013, Sri Lanka will surprise and delight. It is a country with a long and proud history. You'll be amazed at the diversity of landscapes, climates and things you can see and do within small travel distances.
