Synopses & Reviews
The Rough Guide to Sri Lanka is the definitive guide to the island with a full-colour section introducing its highlights; detailed accounts of all the sights, from the bustling street markets of Colombo to the sedate tea plantations of the highlands and great buddhist monuments of The Cultural Triangle. There are candid reviews of the best places to stay and eat, from beachside guesthouses to colonial era hotels and serene ayurveda resorts. The guide also includes detailed coverage of the north and east, until recently off-limits due to the civil war. Finally, there is informed coverage of Sri Lankas history, religions, art and music.
