Why Choose Sri Lanka?
The Undiscovered Country
Sri Lanka has something to offer for every type of traveler: beaches, waves, misty mountains, elephants, leopards, giant whales, a majestic past, lovely tea, and warm smiles could sum up a country, that would be Sri Lanka.
The smiles and hospitality of Sri Lanka are world famous and so are its spicy food, exotic fruits and an array of sweetmeats found nowhere in the world. With so many cultures living next to each other life in Sri Lanka continues among a series of festivities throughout the year, an ideal recipe for fun and leisure.
Getting to Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s international airport, Bandaranaike International Airport, is approximately 40 minutes away from Colombo by car. While there aren’t many direct flights to Colombo from Europe, Australia or the United States, the good news is that most of the U.A.E airlines fly to Sri Lanka via Doha or Abu Dhabi, and there are direct flights from major layover hub airports including Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok.
The City of Colombo
The city of Colombo offers historical monuments, colonial architecture, festivals and events, beaches, fine dining, and shopping. With so much to see, do, and experience in Colombo, it can sometimes be difficult to find all that you need to know about Colombo before or during your visit.
For participants who visit Sri Lanka for the first time, travel to Sri Lanka will naturally be a unique experience. We sincerely hope that the short time the participants spend in the country will be memorable and that you will take advantage of all the nation and our environment offer to those who visit. We look forward to welcoming all the participants around the world in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
