Sri Lanka has often been called “India Lite”, but this jewel-shaped country in the Indian Ocean is in itself unique. Fringed from east to west with white sand beaches and boasting some of the world's most scenic rail routes, Sri Lanka's rustic natural landscapes instills a sense of serenity. Go hiking in the dewy tea plantations of Kandy, surf in the crystal blue waters of Uppuveli in Trincomalee, and golf in the misty mountains of Nuwara Eliya. The most authentic Sri Lankan cuisine can be had at street stalls. A classic favourite to sample is Egg Hoppers a simple dish consisting of a nested egg in a coconut milk and rice-based crispy crepe.
Sri Lanka is a year-round tropical destination.
The country experiences two monsoon every year, each affecting different regions. From May to August, the South-West Monsoon (Yala Monsoon) brings rain to the South, West coast and central Hill Country (i.e. Nuwara Eliya). From October to January, a weaker second monsoon (Maha Monsoon) hits the North, East and central Cultural Triangle (i.e. Dambulla, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa). Separately, during the months of October and November is the inter-monsoon period, where rain is expected across the island.
Recommended months to visit Sri Lanka: January – May, August and December.
