Buddha and the beach
Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) is a tropical island, with landscapes ranging from sandy beaches to lush forests to cool hill towns dotted with tea plantations that, in quieter times, made Sri Lanka famous. The population is overwhelmingly Buddhist, and ancient traditions are still practiced at holy sites scattered across the island. "Lanka" also has a variety of World Heritage sites, from the picturesque hill town of Kandy to the Portuguese fortifications of Galle and monastery-strewn ruins of Anuradhapura.
