It is a 365 day sunny destination with eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, fifteen national parks showcasing spectacular wildlife. This tour mainly focus on Leisure. Sri Lanka is fortunate to have rivers, waterfalls, rain forests, misty mountains, tea plantations, jungles and the most famous golden beaches. Hiking or cycling in the woods is a funny experience. Train ride in the picturesque hills, horse ride, boating in lake and getting close to birds and butterflies is a loving experience. City shopping by a tuk-tuk (ride) and later call it a day at a comfortable resting place is a marvelous treat. The food is cosmopolitan. It is fresh and plentiful and most hotels innovate creatively with the wide variety that is available. There is a fairly extensive choice between spicy Sri Lankan food and standard international fare. An abundance of local tropical fruits and fresh fruit juices are an essential feature of any buffet spread.
