Travel and Intern in Sri Lanka on Your Gap Year

For a small country it packs a punch...

With its diverse landscapes ranging from rainforest, to arid plains, to highlands and sandy beaches, Sri Lanka is truly magical.

Historically, this beautiful country has been run by the British, Portuguese and Dutch, gaining independence in 1948, all of whom have left their mark. It is now a democracy that continues to make economic progress, moving on rapidly from the 2004 tsunami and the tensions of the last decade. Sri Lanka is now a peaceful, safe destination for travelers and many international travel magazines have selected Sri Lanka as a go to destination.

It’s famed for its ancient Buddhist ruins, the city of Anuradhapura, the fort of Galle, rolling tea estates, national parks, jackfruit curry and, of course, cricket. It really is a little slice of heaven.
