Sri Lanka the Pearl of the Indian Ocean
A large and easily accessible tropical island, Sri Lanka boasts an irresistible combination of ancient monuments, verdant vegetation, golden sunny
beaches and diverse cultures.
English is widely spoken, and Dutch and Portuguese influences also reflect Sri Lanka’s colonial past. Today’s population of 18 million includes Sinhalese, Tamils, Moors and Burghers, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and Christians, and the country has a deep sense of pride in the rich
tapestry of traditions which emanate from this intoxicating mix of ethnic groups and religions.
