Sri Lanka

A compact island of diverse scenery, lying serenely in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka offers far more than its beautiful tropical beaches.  The island's long multicultural past means that Buddhist stupas sit side by side with Hindu temples whilst Muslims - descendants of Arab spice traders - still contribute significantly to the island's culture. The national parks are inhabited by a huge variety of birds, reptiles and mammals including leopards, whilst throughout the island monkeys, elephants, monitor lizards and birds of prey are common sights.
