Christian Wolters, the VP of sales and marketing for Intrepid Travel, says, “Sri Lanka has spent a long time in the shadow of India; however, it has shown plenty to offer in its own right. It is much smaller in size, allowing travelers to experience tea plantations in the mountains and sizzling street food all in one day. They have established themselves as a culinary destination with plenty of beach and adventure offerings.”
Geoffrey Kent, the founder and CEO of luxury travel group Abercrombie & Kent, agreed and added, “Successive waves of Indian, Arab, and European traders flocked to Sri Lanka’s palm-fringed shores, attracted by rare spices, precious stones, and magnificent elephants. Ancient cities, tea plantations, and hill stations vie for attention alongside eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There are great beaches and national parks with abundance of wildlife, especially leopard and elephant.”
