For a small island country, Sri Lanka packs a punch for travellers, and takes them through its thriving interiors, relaxing beaches and green folds of tea country to offer an unimaginable wealth of sights. Add to that, the thrill of seeing the elusive leopards in the wild, and the tropical country makes for a wholesome trip for groups with diverse tastes. Despite the bustle of the small cities and the metropolis, Colombo, Sri Lanka exudes a tranquil and easygoing charm.
Some of its most absorbing sites are the Buddhist cave temples and monasteries that lie tucked on hills, and need some amount of legging it to get there. But the one thing that stands out over all the landscapes and heritage treasures, are the warm and welcoming people of the country. The magic of Sri Lanka works best if you veer off the main highways to small villages and towns, open to a quick chat or a cup of tea by the road with locals. No wonder, even the most well travelled people cannot resist the charm of this paradisiacal destination.
