THE MAGNIFICENT GANGARAMAYA TEMPLE IN SRI LANKA CAPITAL COLOMBO ‘A MAJOR TOURIST HIGHLIGHT AND MUST VISIT’

The magnificent Gangaramaya Temple in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital city, is one of the oldest on the island and a magnet for tourists.

As Pakistani blogger Asma writes on Holiday Done Right, “its a huge temple with every inch of it covered in statues of Buddhist, Hindu and Chinese deities and gods.

“The most striking part of it was the colossal statue of Lord Buddha in the Viharaya section of the temple … and one of the major highlights of my trip to Sri Lanka.”

CAST OF UK TV HIT ‘MADE IN CHELSEA’ ESCAPE TO THE STUNNING SHANGRI-LA HAMBANTOTA RESORT IN SOUTHERN SRI LANKA

When the cast of UK TV megahit ‘Made In Chelsea’ was whisked off to Sri Lanka for some much-needed R&R, where better than one of our most über-deluxe beachside hotels!

Keeping them company, away from the “trials and tribulations of their drama-laden lives in London”, was MailOnline, the most read English-language newspaper website on the planet.

Says star writer Andrew Bullock: “In the most recent season, a select few were treated to a stay at possibly the finest location yet: Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa.”

CAMPING ON THE SHORES OF PARADISE! BLUE BEACH ISLAND, A HAVEN WHERE SRI LANKA MEETS THE INDIAN OCEAN

The beach is where Sri Lanka, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, meets the sea—and how better to enjoy it than camping under the stars just feet from the waves!

Unlike in Europe and northern temperate zones, here you often don’t even need a tent, just a lightweight folding mosquito net.

So as the sun sets before your eyes, and the murmur and swoosh of the surf eases you into dreamland, you have time to think about life and all its mysteries!
