With its 1,340km coastline, traces of ancient civilisation, colourful culture and delicious food, there are many things to keep you occupied while on holiday in Sri Lanka.
• A safari in Yala National Park brings the chance to see leopards, as well as elephants, crocodiles and sloth bears
• Take to the waters around Trincomalee, Mirissa or Kalpitiya to spot whales and dolphins
• Marvel at Anuradhapura, the first sacred capital of Sri Lanka, where the extensive ruins are UNESCO-protected
• Cool off in the “hill country”, where you can still see colonial-era trains making their way through tea plantations and rice paddy fields
When to visit
The island is affected by two separate monsoon seasons, which can mean different conditions across the island throughout the year. The main southwest monsoon brings rain to the west, southwest and hill country from April to September, while the less severe northeast monsoon makes the east coast wettest from November to December. In the central highlands, summers are hot and winters mild. The most popular travel season is December to March; the best value is May to August.
What to pack
Temperatures in most parts of the island will rarely drop below 26C, so pack light and airy clothing. It’s a fairly relaxed destination, well used to tourism, but with so many religions practiced, respectful conservatism is also advisable. All visitors to Buddhist and Hindu temples should be appropriately dressed, so take a cover-up, and your shoes must be removed to enter them.
