Sri Lanka is fascinating mix of different cultures, religions, scenery and sightseeing but what truly sets the country apart from any other is the warmth and exceptional hospitality of the Sri Lankan people; you will always be met with a broad welcoming smile. It’s not uncommon for a whole school to turn out to welcome a sports touring group as they arrive to play a fixture.
Sri Lanka’s beautiful environment and variety of picturesque landscapes offer individuals the chance to participate in indoor and outdoor activities. Sri Lanka is also a well know surfing hotspot and also attracts other extreme sports enthusiasts to partake in activities such as mountain biking, diving and ballooning. However, the crown jewel of Sri Lankan sport is their cricket team who famously won the 1996 World Cup. If you get the opportunity, head to either the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo or the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy to experience at carnival-like atmosphere at one of the Twenty20 games.
