Being a multi-religious and multi-ethnic country, Sri Lanka is very unlikely to be described without being driven into a great description as the island is in possession of multiple cultural values; traditional dance, a procession of elephants and Ruins are to name a few.
On top of what nature has to offer, what is being greatly appreciated by the visitors to the island is that the Sri Lankan hospitality, the pleasant attitude of people of Sri Lanka and the delicious delight of the local food.
