Sri Lanka may be tiny when measured in size (only 65.610 km²),  it is immense when measured in experiences, culture, and beauty!

Nature in Sri Lanka offers many diverse views. After a hike in the Horton Plains National Park, you may believe you ended up in New Zealand. But a quick tour through one of the many endless hills with tea plantations will remind you of that you are really in Sri Lanka. Though Sri Lanka is more than just tea. You can also find a tropical rains forest, stunning waterfalls, white beaches, and clear blue oceans.  

Culture lovers can fill their days visiting the many ancient ruins, palaces, temples, stupas, and Buddha statues, which can be found all over the island.

Sri Lanka is heaven for foodies who must try Sri Lanka’s signature dish, Rice & Curry, and more yummy dishes and snacks.

Action seekers will love Sri Lanka for the many beautiful hikes that can be done, and of course surfing at Arugam Bay!

Lastly, Sri Lanka does not fail to please animal lovers either, with over 20 national parks you can spot wildlife at any corner of the island. Just a few of the unique animals you can spot in Sri Lanka: whales, sea turtles, jaguars, elephants, birds, spiders, snakes, and other reptiles endemic to Sri Lanka.

Yes, Sri Lanka may only be 65.610 km² big, but with 65.610 scenes, experiences, and food to try, Sri Lanka proves again that size really doesn’t matter!
