The civil war has ended, 2011 has been declared 'Visit Sri Lanka Year' 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. Author Royston Ellis combines experience with enthusiasm to help visitors get the most from this magical isle, with accommodation ideas to suit all budgets - from cheap guesthouses to boutique villa luxury. Watch the national cricket team while enjoying a cup of the world's finest tea, admire colonial architecture or visit World Heritage sites; everyone will find something to admire in this enchanting 'tiny teardrop'.show more
