Sri Lanka is one of the few places that have many Unesco World Heritage Sites (eight!) packed into such a small area. Across the island, that thing that you might see in the night is an elephant heading to a favourite waterhole. You can take a Safari tours of Sri Lanka’s pleasantly relaxed national parks that are home to leopards, water buffaloes, all manner of birds and a passel of primates.
When you have had enough of the tropical climate of the coast and lowlands,you should head for the hills, with their temperate, achingly green charms. Verdant tea plantations and rainforested peaks beckon walkers, trekkers and those who just want to see it on a spectacular train ride.
In short, Sri Lanka has being described as having endless beaches, timeless ruins, are very welcoming people, have oodles of elephants, have fun trains along with their delicious famous tea and flavourful food.
