Sri Lanka

$1080 per person

Sri Lanka is often referred to as the pearl of the Indian Ocean
If golden beaches, rising waves, misty mountains, mighty elephants, stealthy leopards, giant whales, a majestic past, lovely tea and warm smiles could sum up a country, that would be Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka provide an array of holiday experience from sun kissed beach holidays to a marathon of wildlife watching and visits  to some of the oldest cities in the world.

It  has an honorable history that goes well beyond 2000 years! Some of the ancient cities still hold the splendor of these historic monuments and buildings, most having earned the title of world heritage sites.

The island is tiny yet its features are impressively diverse! Tourists can partake in and enjoy so many activities in so little time!
