A small drop that seems to fall from the southern tip of India, Sri Lanka is often mistakenly considered an island offshoot of India. Although   the two countries have shared historical and mythological connections for more than two thousand five hundred years, Sri Lanka has a culture, a vitality, a landscape and an identity all of her own.

From the ruins of ancient cities to some of the finest beaches in the world, from age-old monasteries to unique wildlife species, and a fascinating mosaic of ethnic communities and religions, the emerald isle of Sri Lanka invites you to come and discover it all.
