Location

Best places to visit in 2012: Sri Lanka (National Geographic)

Sri Lanka, synonymous with its capital city of Colombo is a happy blend of East and West, past & present and has a charm of its own. Popularly known 'the Pearl of the Indian Ocean', Sri Lanka is lush with pristine beaches, lazy coconut plantations and the allure of a forgotten Eden. The country, a sublime mix of colours and cultures is a haven for history and culture enthusiasts. It boasts of various wildlife conservations, tea plantations, museums and several very interesting UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Things to do in Colombo

2. Eat some seafood on Mt Lavinia Beach – Mt Lavinia is one of Colombo’s more laidback suburbs filled with great seafood restaurants on the golden beach and is named after Lovinia, the gypsy dancing girl who had a secret romance with one of Sri Lanka’s governors.

3. Do some last minute shopping – One of Sri Lanka’s best kept secrets is the shopping opportunities in Colombo –sleek department stores and cool shopping malls are filled with designer clothing, shoes and handbags, plus handicrafts, home furnishings and more.

4.
