Reputed to be the place where Adam and Eve first stepped foot on Earth, Sri Lanka’s landscape is definitely conducive to romance. There’s something about its rich colonial architecture and diverse tropical terrain that transports you back in time. A time when the world wasn’t yet fully mapped, and the spirit of adventure was still very much alive.
In particular, the south coast and central highland regions of Kandy have a wide variety of different scenery for you to explore, owing to the country’s four different types of climate.
