Situated in the Indian Ocean and located just off the Southern Coast of India, this island paradise has often been considered the pearl of the Indian Ocean.
Though the country has no other immediate neighbours except for India & Maldives, Sri Lanka maintains close ties with Bangladesh, Pakistan, and other Asian countries in the region.
Sri Lanka’s location at the southern tip of India has always made it an important strategic drop off point for ships making long journeys that pass through Asia which allowed the country to prosper.
With a location just above the equator the country enjoys a lovely tropical climate that provides relatively constant weather throughout the year. Despite this, it also features two main monsoons season that bring about heavy periods of rain.
It is because of this location and the associated climate that the country has beautiful landscapes and a diverse array of wildlife.
