Destination Sri Lanka
~ Salt of the Earth ~
Sri Lanka, a land of both paradise and paradox, is ornate with diverse cultures, a magnitude of magical vistas and epochal histories. From backcountry rivers to big city harbours, whether you want to explore the depths of the country’s culture, religions, heritage or perhaps get lost in the sense of wondrous adventure, Sri Lanka is a place that differs from other island destinations in its tropicality and otherworldliness. Here, you are greeted with gentle smiles of the islanders, transported from past to present through its timeless ruins, soft sandy beaches often untrodden, verdant tea plantations, lush rainforest lands and a rich heritage manifested through multi-ethnicities.
Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon is a tropical island oasis that captures the heart of every traveller who visits year-round. Blessed with a diversity of all manners, from outdoor adventures, spiritual retreats, culture and lifestyle experiences, exhilarating game drive experiences - Sri Lanka offers much variety for those willing to scratch beneath the surface. Whether you have a few days to spare or even weeks, the island offers unique experiences any time of the year and a chance to immerse yourself in the true essence of our people, lifestyles, culture and customs.
In the past, waves of influences have poured on the shores of ancient Ceylon from the North bringing with them their language, their cuisine, their technology and art and above all, their religion. As a result, present-day Sri Lanka is inherently a rich cocktail of many cultures and traditions that have influenced Sri Lanka since time immemorial.
Culture & Lifestyles
~ The Islanders ~
“Sri Lanka is a brilliant concoction of cultures and traditions embedded in its glorious vibrations of history”
Sri Lankans are incredibly warm and friendly, and bright smiles are a way of indicating the quiet and unpressured style of life that has been blessed to us as islanders. A tropical island culture fortified by its land’s resources through centuries has grown into a way of life of its people, and is most fascinating to experience.
Home to four different religions, Sri Lanka more often than not, is hailed for its possession of natural wonders and timeless ruins amongst many other striking characteristics. The heart and soul of the island, however, belong to its greatest emotional affluence - its people.
Sri Lanka’s verdurous and diverse landscapes are phenomenal in ways that it has captured the hearts of many travellers through millennia. With lush and plentiful ecosystems bestowed upon invigorating rainforests, cloud kissed mountains, trickling waterfalls and abundant wildlife, our island stands as a true testament to being one of the most iconic and less explored regions of the Indian Ocean.
The greatest influences of our island aren't just fascinating cultures, impressive architecture or ruined cities, but also the wealth of its teeming blue coral oceans and tranquil beaches subject to an assortment of hymns by poets and artists over decades. Indeed our bounteous landscapes are a worthy competitor to all other striking features of the island and, rightly so.
