OVERVIEW

Finally, peace prevails in this emerald isle. There is much to see and to experience in Sri Lanka – the colonial architecture, the Buddhist heritage, magnificent beaches, lush hill country with the expansive tea estates, the wildlife and whales, the spicy and delicious cuisine and most of all its friendly people.

The capital, Colombo, is a shopper’s paradise with great bargains on export-quality garments, movie collections, home décor and not to forget, gemstones.  Kandy, 3 hours from the capital is in  Sri Lanka’s cooler hill country and is a popular Buddhist destination, home to the  Temple of the Tooth , that houses the sacred tooth relic of Buddha. Higher up is Nuwara Eliya (pronounced Nureliya), where the British introduced tea and which now produces some of the world’s finest teas. The setting is misty and tranquil, perfect for a relaxed break and learning about tea.

Sri Lanka’s golf courses may be limited in numbers, but are loaded with character. The Royal Colombo Golf Club has a railway track running through it, the picturesque, old and quaint Nuwara Eliya Golf Club is situated at a height of 2000 metres and Victoria Golf & Country Resort, near Kandy is truly spectacular and challenging. With this roster of courses, it’s possible to have a great golf vacation in Sri Lanka.
