Lonely Planet has selected Sri Lanka as one of the top travel destinations for 2019.
We are delighted, but not surprised, 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 accessible than ever, and the food and warm welcome only add to the numerous tourist attractions.
