Sri Lanka, an island in the Indian Ocean just south of India, is a country of diverse landscapes and ancient cities. Ocean fringed jungles, lush green tea plantations and sandy beaches sit alongside beautiful historic ruins and sacred temples. Brightsun Travel has a range of luxurious and cheap holidays to Sri Lanka, including tours of its lush interior, dramatic beach escapes and safaris of a lifetime. A scenic train journey through Sri Lanka’s stunning interior will take you past its famous tea plantations, producing some of the finest tea in the world. Whilst a trip to Yala National Park will offer you the safari of a lifetime, travelling through forests, grasslands and wetlands, with the opportunity to spot wild elephants and big cats. Yala National Park is the most visited park in the country, perhaps owing to the fact that it provides sanctuary to the highest leopard concentration in the world.
As well as its beautiful natural landscapes, Sri Lanka’s long history is evident in its magical ancient cities, many with the UNESCO World Heritage status, such as Kandy, surrounded by hills and set on the Kandy Lake, which is home to the Temple of the Tooth, a marble temple housing a sacred Buddhist shrine. Then there's the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, an abandoned palace at the top of a gigantic boulder and one of the most visited sites in Sri Lanka today. Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, has its share of historical sites and is fast becoming a Sri Lankan favourite for tourists, offering a vibrant mix of high rises and sandy boulevards, with beautiful parks, trendy galleries and busy markets. Brightsun Travel offers exclusive holidays to Sri Lanka to incorporate the ocean city of Colombo, alongside memorable trips to Kandy, Sigiriya and other incredible sites such as the Dambulla cave temple, with important Buddhist statues and mesmerising cave paintings.
Finally, let us not forget Sri Lanka’s beaches.
