Sri Lanka is an island that has so much to offer as a holiday destination. Home to exotic beaches, roaming countryside, beautiful wildlife, yummy food and a country just oozing with history and culture. With eight hours of sunshine a day, there will be plenty of time exploring the many UNESCO World Heritage sites or just sit and drink a cocktail while topping up your tan. On the west of the island alongside the fishing towns, a string of high-end luxury hotels has sprung up for tourists. The south coast is more traditional and is home to smaller boutiques and annual literary festivals.
