We are delighted, but not suprised, that Sri Lanka has been picked as the top travel location for 2019 by Lonely Planet. The country boasts a range of activities and trips, as well as a wonderful culture and history to explore. From safaris and whale watching to exploring temples and hiking there is something for everyone during their elective placement.
Some of the top picks that set Sri Lanka apart included watching the elephants at Minneiya National Park, the growing surf scene, Abhayagiri Monastery (which dates back to 1st Century BC) and World’s End!
The country’s growing transportation links have made it more accessable then ever, and the food and warm welcome only add to the numerous tourist attractions. Check out Lonley Planet’s fantastic video on Sri Lanka, highlighting the country’s beauty, and read the Telegraph’s article on Sri Lanka winning this award!
It is all these reasons and more that we expanded our medical elective projects to Sri Lanka. Find out more about our new projects on our MEA Sri Lanka website.
