About: To describe Sri Lanka in a few words is impossible, but in short, the best things come in small packages. An isle in the midst of the Indian Ocean, this country brags of outstanding white-sand beaches, a dramatic landscape, exotic species of birds and animals in luxuriant rainforests, world-class tea plantations, flavourful and fresh seafood, diverse ethnic groups and beautiful people.
The backpacking tour to Sri Lanka is a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds that will keep you wanting for more. This island nation's heritage is deep-rooted and although the land partly owes and shares its history with the Indian peninsula, it (also called British Ceylon) has an affluent culture of its own.
So, be prepared to experience the transcendent beauty of this tropical province called Sri Lanka.
