Discover the beauty of Sri Lanka in Photos

We've had the privilege of visiting Sri Lanka twice. In 2010 we fell in love with the country spending a month traveling around by trains, local buses and tuk tuk drivers. We revisited Sri Lanka last November and it was a very different experience and captured many more Sri Lanka photos. My how it has changed and blossomed. Tourism is at an all time high with grand resorts opening up everywhere. One thing that hasn't changed though, is the beauty of the land and the generous spirit of the people. We have a soft spot for Sri Lanka, it is often at the top of our list of places we recommend to visit. We hope that after viewing these photos, you will feel the same way.
