An island gem with a spicy history

Sri Lanka was once known as Serendib, origin of the word serendipity, an apt description for the pleasant surprises certain to pop up as you explore this gem of an island with everything to offer: white beaches, lush tropical forests, fragrant gardens of cinnamon and clove, and a long and equally spicy history.

From Colombo, the capital, you can meet the gang at the elephant orphanage, take a trip to Kandy to visit a temple purported to house a tooth of the Buddha, or check out village life on a bicycle.

Don’t forget to take some of the excellent tea home with you, a product for which the island became world famous under yet another name: Ceylon.
