While they're rightly famed for their luxurious resorts and gorgeous, palm-fringed beaches, there's also a wealth of history and cultural traditional associated with the islands of the Indian Ocean.
Sri Lanka in particular has a vast and rich cultural diversity that includes a large number of customs, rituals and festivals, many of which have been maintained and are still practiced today. there are also a number of World Heritage Sites to discover here, including the citadel of Sigiriya, city of Polonnaruwa and the rock temples of Dambulla.
These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your history and culture holiday in the Indian Ocean by adding an activity or excursion to your itinerary; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
