Synopses & Reviews
In spite of political problems and no-go areas youll find plenty of attractions on the tiny teardrop island of Sri Lanka. The islands rich history comes alive with hundreds of temples, monasteries and gardens and even colonial architecture such as the World Heritage Site of Galle Fort. Watch Sri Lankas feisty cricket team, taste some of the worlds finest teas, or relax on its sandy beaches. Sri Lanka is a country where you can splash out, even if your budget is small.
