Named as Lonely Planet’s top destination for 2019 and romantically christened the “teardrop of India”, Sri Lanka is full of surprises. Along with a stunning coastline, the island offers history spanning 3,000 event-filled years, nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites and culture of unbelievable depth and diversity. Set amongst lush, green and picturesque mountains lined with tea plantations and alongside golden, sandy beaches, the setting is spectacular and makes for a holiday to be remembered forever.
