Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is often being referred to as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean (also as the Teardrop of India, which would be a tear of pure joy), and it’s not so hard to see why. Sri Lanka is a true gem, rich in tradition and culture, rich in nature and landscape, rich in wildlife, beaches, smiles, delicious food, … Describing the island nation as a stepping stone to India (or even worse: a India Light) is just not correct and pretty disrespectful to the identity of Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is a fantastic destination on its own, offering everything a traveler could wish for.
