This stunningly beautiful island hangs like a tear drop from the southern tip of the Indian sub-continent.
The Sri Lankan coastline is made up of beaches, large and small, with soft golden sands and palm trees to give shade from the tropical sun, whilst the interior of the island is covered with paddy fields with crops of rice, high mountains with towns and cities of cooler temperatures more like a British summer day and ancient cities half buried by the jungle, with spired buildings poking enticingly through the tree tops.
The mountain slopes in the interior of the island are home to the plantations which produce the famous Orange Pekoe Ceylon tea.
