Summary

The civil war has ended and all regions of this ‘resplendent land’ are now accessible to visitors. The island offers everything from snorkelling and sandy beaches to golf and hill-country tea plantations; from ancient temples and ruins to shopping opportunities in Colombo’s bustling streets. In this new edition, Royston Ellis, a Sri Lankan resident, explores the diversity Sri Lanka offers in an easy-to-read narrative packed with entertaining comments and sound advice, based on personal experience. Combining experience with enthusiasm he helps visitors get the most from this magical isle - everyone will find something to admire in this enchanting ‘tiny teardrop’.
