Sri Lanka is made for romantics. Think spiritual temples and buddhist shrines, tucked away coral beaches and breath-taking scenery.
Sri Lanka has any number of fine, coral beaches to stroll along, the Indian Ocean lapping at your feet. But for true romance very little comes close to walking around Kandy’s Temple of the Tooth as night falls – its white domes and columns turned gold by the setting sun; reflected in the stillness of the temple’s moat.
And then there is the impressive mass of Sigiriya; a fortified palace placed on a dizzyingly high rock. The climb up the rickety staircase will leave you breathless, but the views – and the fortress itself - will prove breathtaking!
But that is Sri Lanka. A delightful combination of awe-inspiring scenery and sights, ultimately luxurious accommodation and a seemingly endless procession of temples and shrines, hidden treasures, glorious beaches and bustling towns.
