About Sri Lanka
Set in the Indian Ocean in South Asia, the tropical island nation of Sri Lanka has a history dating back to the birth of time. It is a place where the original soul of Buddhism still flourishes and where nature’s beauty remains abundant and unspoilt. This is an island of magical proportions, once known as Serendib, Taprobane, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, and Ceylon. Few places have as many UNESCO World Heritage sites (eight) packed into such a small area. Its 2000-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancients sites filled with mystery. Let's discover refreshingly Sri Lanka!
