Sri Lanka contains an astonishing seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites within its compact shores. The most intriguing and popular World Heritage site is Sigiriya dubbed "the eighth wonder of the world". The rock face was covered with sensual frescoes of celestial maidens, described as the world’s largest picture galleries. A World Heritage Site of a different era is the Dutch Fort of Galle, considered the best-preserved fort in South Asia. With 14 massive bastons, a grid system of streets and some original Dutch bungalows, the fort bustles with life as it did when Galle was the main passenger port. It is one of the most unique attractions in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka’s second largest city, Kandy, is famed for not only its history, artefacts and temples, but also for its tea, its stunning scenery and lush botanical gardens. The most visited site within bustling Kandy is the famed Buddhist Temple of the Tooth, home to the tooth relic, said to be a piece of Buddha himself. There are also a number of temples including the Lankatilaka Temple and the Gadaladeniya Temple as well as some beautiful gardens such as the Royal Botanical Gardens. Surrounding Kandy are rolling tea plantations and mountainous thickly forested hills that offer fantastic walking and hiking opportunities.
Nestled along secluded shores is the enchanting town of Kalutara, promising truly unforgettable Sri Lanka holidays. Rich culture, exotic adventures, thrilling water sports and palm-fringed golden beaches are all part of the many discoveries that lie in store.
