Framed by warm waters and beautiful beaches, this teardrop-shaped island is an idyllic getaway.

Whether you want to get cultural in Kandy, try your hand at surfing in Arugam or sample the very best cuisine across the island, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that Sri Lanka has to offer.

Sri Lanka is simply stunning. Its landscapes range from humid rainforests to sandy beaches, soaring peaks to tea-planted valleys. The island’s urban environments are similarly diverse. There’s Colombo, the cosmopolitan capital; traditional Kandy, which is home to the Temple of the Tooth; and picture-perfect Galle, with its imposing Dutch fort. And if that wasn’t enough to entice you to visit, there’s the food – crunchy hoppers, steaming samosas and comforting curries.

Our updated guide brings Sri Lanka to life, transporting you there like no other travel guide does with expert-led insights, trusted travel advice, detailed breakdowns of all the must-see sights, photographs on practically every page, and our hand-drawn illustrations which place you inside the country’s iconic buildings and neighbourhoods.
