Known as “The Nation of Smiling People” Sri Lanka was long avoided by travellers and tourists because of decades of civil war. But since the country has been released from domestic civil tensions, it has become a travel hotspot. If the balmy warm weather wasn’t enough to lure you to the country, it’s worth noting that there’s also eight World Heritage sites, more than 1,000km of coast line to laze on and lush jungles and national parks to explore. If you haven’t yet explored the beauty that is Sri Lanka, then just take a look at the following photos. They’re sure to inspire you to buy a ticket and head to Sri Lanka as soon as possible.
