Is located right in the middle of the world, accessible within a few hours?
Has this fascinating and very colourful culture and an incredible mix of races, religion, customs and always smiling and friendly people?
Is probably the most bio-diverse island of its size in the world (think Ireland or Tasmania) with beaches, mountains, plains, rainforests, scrub jungle and even deserts?
Has perfect tropical weather year- round?
Possesses the most gorgeous scenery couple with an entrancing history and natural wildlife – think ruins over 2,500 years old (many of them UNESCO World heritage listed), think leopards, bear, elephant, wild buffalo, think rolling hills carpeted verdantly with tea, think over 1000 kilometers of the finest golden sand beaches in the world, think colorful festivals (the Kandy Perahera in July or August has 80 beautifully clothed and illuminated elephants in procession interspersed with torch-bearers, whip-crackers, fire-eaters, acrobatic dancers and drummers, exquisitely dressed temple chieftans – AND THAT’S JUST ONE!!) ?
Has a superb range of accommodation from the most basic to the disgustingly opulent, many of them featured in the glamour magazines of the world? Has an electric heritage in food – South Indian, Malay, English, Dutch, Chinese combine to provide the ultimate gourmet experience? In short, there simply is no other country like it in the world for things to do and places to see in such a compact little island.
