Places to visit in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka may look like a small island but, from the west-coast golden-sand beaches of Negombo through the rolling hills of Nuwara Eliya to the plains leading to Jaffna in the north, there’s a lot to see. You can explore the history of Sri Lanka in the ancient Singhalese kingdoms of the Cultural Triangle and the Dutch-colonial fortress of Galle. National parks are spread across the country, including Uda Walawe with its roaming herds of elephants.
