They say big things come in small packages. And relatively speaking, Sri Lanka is a great illustration of just that. Teeming with cultural heritage, an abundance of natural beauty and virtually endless stretches of pristine beach, all bundled into an island where the farthest distance from end to end is a mere 435kms.

Being a hub for historic trade routes and plenty of colonial activity makes for a unique cultural identity shaped by very diverse influences. Remains of ancient, sophisticated civilisations contribute to eight Unesco World Heritage Sites dotted across the island. One of these sites is Kandy, home of the sacred tooth relic, a city that is considered a bastion of Buddhist faith. A mix of external influence and isolation has given way to a culture that is unique, including languages and food that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the world.
