Welcome to Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is a destination that has got all the necessary holiday ingredients hence the reason it is often accompanied by the descriptive title of ‘magical magnificence’. Holidays in Sri Lanka are a combination of magic that enthralls you and magnificence because of the striking impression it leaves on you. Once you step off that plane and onto Sri Lankan soil you are part of an unforgettable experience that will leave you longing for more.
Sri Lanka is a tropical island found off the southern tip of India. Part of the South Asian subcontinent, this pearl of the Indian Ocean, (as it has been described for time immemorial) is a travellers’ paradise and the scene of many a historic event. According to its earliest historical record the Mahavamsa, one of the first names it was called by was ‘Tambapanni’ because when invaders landed from India they noticed the copper (Tamba) coloured sea-sand. The golden beaches of Sri Lanka are a testament to the fact that although over a 1000 years has passed since this incident was recorded not much has changed in the natural beauty of the island.
