Two Irresistible Tourist Destinations in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, the teardrop shaped island country in the Indian Ocean, has of late made a grand entry on the world tourism map and holds prominence as a leading tourist destination among travellers all over the world. Here are just two of the nation’s big draws that everyone booking flights tickets to the country dreams of a rendezvous with.

Sigiriya Rock Fortress
This, 1,214 feet high UNESCO World Heritage Site, believed to be the remnant of a long extinct volcano, is surrounded by well maintained gardens and provides a commanding view of the surrounding areas. All those buying tickets on flights to Sri Lanka must make the time to visit the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. The site can be easily reached by road and travellers can avail cabs from Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, after their flight land at the Colombo International Airport.

Batticoloa and the East Coast of Sri Lanka
Those who book flights to Sri Lanka with desire to explore its golden sandy beaches, enjoy peaceful days sunbathing while sipping on refreshing coconut water, must find the time to visit the many beaches on the East Coast of Sri Lanka, including Batticoloa that tops popularity charts. Seafood aficionados who buy tickets on flights to the country to immerse in the authentic flavours can treat themselves to freshly caught and cooked sea food at such locations. After their flights land at Colombo International Airport, travellers can choose to buy tickets on trains or book a cab to visit the Batticoloa beach.
