Formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka is well-known for its tea. However, not many people know of the island’s fascinating history. Temples, ruined cities and old fortresses dot the country’s interior. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the many national parks offering opportunities to spot wildlife and beach bums will be thrilled to see the beautiful white sand beaches.
For people short on time, this is the perfect place for a honeymoon designed to suit different tastes. For people with more flexibility, there are frequent connections from Sri Lanka to India. The island has developed a lot since the end of their civil war so go soon if you want to get a feel for “authentic” Sri Lanka.
