BRIDES MAGAZINE EXTOLS THE ULTIMATE SRI LANKA ROMANTIC TROPICAL HONEYMOON
Brides magazine in the US says that “a Sri Lankan honeymoon guarantees an epic journey because nowhere else in the world can you experience such a wide array of cultures and experiences in one compact destination”.
Writer Katie James reports that our paradise Pearl of the Indian Ocean tropical island “has been the subject of much buzz in recent years, quickly becoming one of the world’s most up-and-coming destinations”.
“Everywhere you go leads to discovery: ancient temples in the Cultural Triangle, artist havens in Kandy, tea plantations in Ceylon, palm-lined beaches in Tangalle, colonial-era buildings in Galle, leopards on safari in Yala National Park, and metropolitan grandeur in Colombo.”
