When it comes to popular travel destinations, Sri Lanka has been off the map for far too long. We think we should change that. This two-week trip that showcases the countrys vibrant cities and beautiful beaches with a huge helping of culture and history on the side should convince you. Youll go from exploring ancient ruins and UNESCO sites to spice gardens and tea plantations, and even take safari game drives to see majestic elephants in their natural environment. And with an expert CEO showing you the ins and outs of the country, youll get to see Sri Lanka in a way that other travellers dont.
