Landscapes

Sri Lanka is home to a vast diversity of landscapes: paddy fields, the African savannah in the South-East, where the Yala reserve can also be found, mountains in the Centre and tea plantations (the most renowned station is Nurawa Eliya with its very British charm), and the region of lakes surrounding Kandy... Without forgetting the jungle in the north of the cultural triangle, made up of the archeological sites of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Kandy.

Coasts

From east to west and north to south, Sri Lanka offers numerous and splendid beaches. Each has a different charm and seduces all those who venture there. Some are more shady while others, which are and hidden and therefore less frequented, welcome divers, swimmers, families and couples.

Traditions

Sri Lanka's cultural wealth is very rich. Dancing and theatre are part and parcel of Sri Lankan life. Do not hesitate to discover these arts. As for handicrafts, there is no doubt that you will be spoilt for choice regarding souvenirs.

Parks and reserves

Sri Lanka boasts several national parks, 12 in all, where wild elephants, monkeys and birds live together in total safety. Protected reserves also play host to Sri Lankan fauna.
