Sri Lanka … The Island Paradise

Located in the Indian Ocean like a tiny drop of pearl, Sri Lanka is a land in which you can find the warm sunny beaches, cool misty mountain ranges and rainforests, monumental castles, temples from ancient kingdoms as well as parks for wildlife safaris.
All this can be found within the small Island of Glory surrounded by the ocean.

It is a paradise on earth and a must visit location for any tourist traveling to Asia.

Some attractions are:

    Sea
  • Sri Lanka offers you endless miles of perfect golden sand fringed by swaying coconut palms. Favorite resorts like Negombo, Mount Lavinia, Beruwella, Bentota and Hikkaduwa (on the west and south coasts) plus Trincomalee, Nilaveli and Kalkudah (on the east coast) are everyone's idea of a tropical paradise with temperatures in the middle 80's F. (29 C.) virtually all year round.
  • For the more energetic, there is water skiing, sailing, surfing, scuba diving and deep sea fishing. The Coral Gardens of Hikkaduwa and the Great and Little Basses on the South coast, plus Trincomalee and Pigeon Island on the east coast are a few of Sri Lank's several spots for the underwater fanatic. Slide into their crystal clear waters and discover a brilliant tropical rainbow, spectacular submarine scenery, shipwrecks and shoals of brightly colored fish basking in their coral sanctuaries.
    Wilderness
  • The Sinharaja rain-forest is an example of one of the remaining rain forests in Asia. It is also a primeval sanctuary for over 170 varieties of exotic orchid.
  • Horton Plains is a special attraction. This remote plateau is the island's last remaining montane forest - the home of some fauna and flora species found nowhere else in the world.
  • Kumana and Wirawila are just two of Sri Lanka's magnificent bird sanctuaries. Stilts Barbets, Flycatchers, Ibis, Pelicans, Parrots, Peacocks, Parakeets, Devil Hawks, Hawks, Jungle Fowl and Stork abound in these sanctuaries.
  • But, to many, the national parks like Yalla, Wilpattu and Inginiyagala hold the greatest appeal. From the safety of a park bungalow or a covered jeep, visitors can watch Leopard, Loris, Elephant, Monkey, Deer, Boar and Bear roam free in these exquisite reserves.
    Ledgends
  • The sacred city of Anuradhpura, founded in the 5th century BC is venerated as the capital city of Buddhism. The sacred Bo tree grown from a sapling of the tree, under which the Buddha attained enlightenment, is the oldest living tree in documented history. In its vicinity are the remains of the Brazen Palace, the towering Ruwanveliseya Gagaba, the Seated Buddha, Temples, Palaces and Parks - all of which bear testimony to a proud and imaginative people.
  • A mere eight miles away is Mihintale - the cradle of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. It is a mountain monastery connected with Arahat Mahinda who brought Buddhism to the island in 247 BC.
  • Plonnaruwa - the medieval capitol of Sri Lanka - where art, architecture and engineering were revived into cultural epoch is a monument to Sri Lanka's great renaissance.
  • Sigiriya - a massive rock fortress built in the 5th century AD - is an enduring tribute to one man's vision. In a sheltered pocket of the giant rock are the celebrated frescoes - the 'Sigiriya Maidens' - and what remains of an enormous gallery which once contained five hundred portraits.
  • Kandy, the last capitol of the Sinhala kings is a living record to a magnificent past. Dominating Kandy is the Dalada Maligawa - the temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, with the Kandy Lake in the foreground.
