• Sri Lanka Experiences

    Ayubowan! Taprobane comes alive as a new day dawns: the ancient cities of Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura shake off the dewdrops and rise in majestic splendour: vast white painted Dagoba sparkle in the dancing sunbeams…..wherever you look, the enigmatic smile of the Lord Buddha welcomes one and all. High in the Hill Country, bathed in hues of emerald green, tea pickers pluck the delicate buds of tea. At Sigiriya the delectable frescoes of lovely Maidens transcend heaven and earth; in Kandy the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic stands resolute. Herds of elephant, buffalo and shy leopard roam the Wildlife Parks, whilst offshore whales and dolphins grace the shimmering seas.
