Located in the Northern part of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka used to be known as Ceylon until 1972. The locals are friendly; the weather is fantastic and the beaches are pristine.
This is partly what makes holidays to Sri Lanka so popular. It is affordable, has plenty of attractions and the food is packed full of flavour. You will fall in love with this beautiful island the minute you step onto it.
