An island south of India, Ceylon as it’s used to called, was one of the most important commercial stations between the West and the East, playing an important role in the Silk Road. Its endless beaches, the ancient cities of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya, the three diamonds of the crown, the exciting hinterland with the endless tea plantations and the always smiling inhabitants make up a rising exotic destination with a special history.
It is the place where, according to the beliefs, Ramayana, the epic Sanskrit Hindu poem, is being played, which even today can be followed in the mountains, temples lost in the jungle and hot springs. The capital, Colombo, is a large city with little tourist interest. The Galle colonial fortress, where you think time has stopped, the boho-chic air, traditional colorful fishing boats, monasteries and monks, tea and cinnamon plantations, and coconut-like cobblestones that crawl into the soft sandy sand make up a landscape simply dreamlike! The world’s most famous sapphires originate in Sri Lanka, as are dozens of other precious and semi-precious stones. Elephants are more crowded than cats, while Yala National Park can even see leopards in the foliage.
It is one of the world’s most known centers of Buddhism and meditation, and ayurveda that first came to the country in the 6th century BC. has now grown into national medicine. Meditation or yoga at sunrise or even better ayuerveda camp for total two-week detox is life experience. The best beaches are in the southern part of the island: from the bustling Unawatuna to the quiet Mirissa, the options are too many. There is no better way to explore the hinterland from the train. The route slips between mountains and endless plains planted with tea. Sri Lanka is also a paradise for those who want to learn surfing. In Hikkaduwa, in the southwestern part of the island, mild waves combined with the sandy bottom are ideal for first-time visitors.
