  ‘So much in so little’ is the true description of the small island-nation, Sri Lanka. You will literally be slack-jawed at how a tiny country can have such diverse ranges of landscapes; from highlands and sandy beaches to rainforest and arid plains, and how it embodies so much beauty and wonder. Right from enjoying a calm sunrise from Adam’s peak while soaking in the sweeping views of the valley unfolding beneath, to relishing endless tropical beaches, watching elephants bathe at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, to savouring scenic train journeys, Sri Lanka amazes tourists with its varied experiences. Talking about the cities, Anuradhapura is home to numerous ruins dating back over 2,000 years, like Jetavanaramaya, the tallest brick-made structure in the world. Move to Nuwara Eliya, the most beautiful highland city with picturesque landscapes and moderate temperatures, to escape the tropical climate. To enjoy spectacular sunsets, come to the idyllic beaches of this island-nation, where you can witness local stilt fishermen displaying their extraordinary fishing skills. Savour the nation’s popular fish curries and rice, lovingly served in mud pots. By night time, head to Colombo, where glitzy sky scrapers and world-class luxurious hotels lined along the sea-shore, will comfort your senses. Short distance-flights from UAE, affordable itineraries, eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization), and welcoming locals further make Sri Lanka an irresistible land. Check out some stunning images that beautifully sum up what Sri Lanka tourism is all about!
