Sri Lankan holidays offer tourists a welcoming atmosphere and beautiful landscapes, it has been suggested.
Writing for the Daily Mail, Jenny Coad noted that now is the "perfect time" to visit the island as Sri Lankans look to encourage people to their homeland.
She stated: "They are natural hosts, inviting travellers into their homes for tea or even a traditionally cooked curry - a marathon that will leave you full for days."
According to Ms Coad, the "ever-changing scenery" is a wonder to behold, with temples, tuk-tuks and gorgeous vegetation dotting the region.
Luxury seekers visiting the country's largest city, Columbo, were advised to stay at the Park Street Hotel, a chic offering only a short distance from the National Museum.
The latter provides a historic look at the "treasures" of Sri Lanka's ancient cities, including Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Kand, Ms Coad explained.
Suite 101 contributor Ankie Renique recently described Sri Lanka's national parks as some of the least commercial in the world, allowing travellers to see some of the world's densest populations of elephants and leopards.
