Once war-torn, Sri Lanka is emerging as one of Asia’s ultimate destinations. This tiny island offers great diversity. There’s the bustle of the capital Colombo, a buzzing city offering amazing food and a killer beach to boot. If it’s sand you’re after, the entire coastline is one continuous gem, with azure waters and countless places to lay your towel and soak up the sun. Nature lovers can indulge their passion at Uda Walawe National Park, home to leopards, wild buffalo and the ubiquitous elephant. And no trip is complete without catching a game of cricket at the picturesque Galle stadium, overlooked by the stunning old fort.
