The Indian Ocean State

The island state of Sri Lanka is located east of India, with the shortest distance between the island and Kodiyakkarai in India being about 55 kilometres. On Sri Lanka there are some worth seeing cities with interesting sights, like the centrally located city Kandy with tooth temple and Jaffna in the north with Tamil stronghold.

Explore different landscapes

For the search for an apartment in Sri Lanka, the island offers several regions with different landscapes. The central highlands are characterised by mountains and tea-growing areas up to 2,500 metres high. In addition, Sri Lanka is divided into the lowland plain and the coastal region, which has numerous palm beaches.

A popular form of transport in Sri Lanka are three-wheeled vehicles, also called tuk-tuks. The three-wheeled mopeds, which are protected by a canopy, offer an economical way to get from one place to another within a city area.

Top 3 travel tips

1. Pay a visit to the cave temple

Absolutely worth seeing is the cave temple of Dambulla, a rock temple equipped with 53 cave Buddhas. The temple was built in 104 BC as a refuge for King Valagama Bahu. Besides a 30 meter high golden Buddha at the Golden Temple you can also visit a museum here.

2. Observe whales passing in the south

On Sri Lanka you have in the south with Mirissa the possibility of driving with an excursion boat for whale observation on the sea. It is not uncommon for a blue whale to suddenly appear right next to the boat, allowing you to admire the animals at close range. Refreshments such as snacks and drinks are offered on the boats.

3. Try delicious dishes from Singhalese cuisines

The dishes on Sri Lanka are among the hottest in the world. The dishes consist mainly of rice and curry and are varied with vegetables as well as fish or chicken. In addition, string hoppers, pasta noodles in strips, are a popular ingredient in the cuisines of Sri Lanka.
