Sri Lanka has long been known as the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean”. This stunning country offers culture, breath-taking landscapes, delicious cuisine, and friendliness in abundance. Sri Lanka’s enchanting people make the country so easy to travel and live in. The viridian blue of the Indian Ocean is mesmerising, with temples and shrines dotted all along the coast of Sri Lanka perfectly combines culture with luxury.
