Imagine a country with beautiful ancient cities, unbelievably clean and pristine beaches, exotic festivals, wildlife both on land and sea (think nature reserve trekking on top of whale and dolphin watching), fun water activities such as white water rafting and relaxing spas and treatments on par with those in Thailand. It may sound too good to be true, but the fact is Sri Lanka has all of that to offer, along with a long history of a whopping 2500 years. While you may not find many luxuries or comforts in the rural villages, you’ll find plenty of plush hotels in the bigger cities like Colombo that meld traditional interiors and architecture with modern levels of service.
