about sri lanka:
Often referred to as the tear drop of India, Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) is an island nation with loads to offer visitors. From ancient citadels to national parks loaded with animals to beaches to the lush central highlands & tea plantations, one could easily spend a month exploring.
Once you're there, food, accommodation and transportation are all pretty cheap. And for such a small island there is plenty of diversity on offer among the landscapes, festivals, and genuinely nice people. The literacy rate is the highest in all of south Asia, and English is spoken everywhere which makes travel here even easier.
