.Sri Lanka formerly known as Ceylon, is in Southern Asia. It is an island country in the Indian Ocean, south of India. A small teardrop that falls from the great Indian subcontinent, it's a colourful and chaotic, diverse and devoted country - where Buddhism and an infatuation with the national cricket team take precedent. The ‘Island of Serendipity' - as Sri Lanka is known - has been on the tourist trail for some time. And yet the bounteous enthusiasm of its local communities and the immensity of its cultural and historical treasures make even luxury Sri Lankan holidays feel like real exploration. 

The areas that can be visited pack enough into your itinerary to keep you happy for weeks. There is nothing that you "Can't Do" in Sri Lanka and there is variety of things that you can do depending on your preference. Beautiful beaches abound, especially around the southern coast. Steamy tropical rain forests are home to elephants, leopards, dugong and migratory birds. 
The cities offer a glimpse into the influence of Dutch, Portuguese and British colonial times; Galle presents the finest example of an old Dutch fort, whilst the profusion of cricket pitches is the best indicator of Britain's legacy...
Sri Lanka has a tropical climate : hot and humid weather year round. Temperatures average around 30 °C during the day, slightly more at the coast, slightly lower more inland. In the mountains it can get a bit chilly though. Rainfall is possible year round, but is higher during the April to June and September to December period. January-February and July-August are somewhat drier.

Mannar Island is Planet's newest find in Sri Lanka. The island is linked to the mainland of Sri Lanka via a causeway. On the northwestern coast of the island, in a small village called Talaimannar, sandbanks and limestone shoals form what is known as Adam's Bridge - a spit of land stretches out from Sri Lanka to India. It is here where you will also find a large space of protected flatwater. The protected sandbanks of Mannar are well-known for strong winds and as a sanctuary for numerous migratory birds - you can spot countless species from your verandah! Whether you are a dedicated ornithologist or new to bird spotting, Sri Lanka’s wildlife will have you amazed.
