Tour Description: This tour is designed to give visitors a chance to explore what this incredible island has to offer. The island of Sri Lanka is ringed by golden sandy beaches, many empty of human habitation. World class resorts built adjacent to snorkeling and dive sites sit beside lagoons lined with tall coconut palms and miles of clear shallow water. Visit some of world’s most ancient cities, their once glorious palaces, temples, monasteries, hospitals and theaters intricately carved and modeled out of stone, having laid abandoned and forgotten for centuries amidst the ever encroaching jungles. Old Portuguese and Dutch churches and forts along the western and southern coasts are lasting reminders of centuries of colonial Christian rule. The fortified city of Galle in the southwest, with its huge walls and bastions, long thought to be the ancient seaport of Tarshish, is a world heritage site and the largest remaining fortress in Asia built by European occupiers. The island is filled with wildlife sanctuaries, tropical rain forests and nature reserves. The mist-filled valleys of the central highlands and the magnificent coral reefs ringing the coast make the island a nature-lover’s paradise.
