Explore Sensational Sri Lanka With Mollie Fitzgerald From February 21 - March 6, 2018
Added: Wed 4th Oct 17

Dear Frontiers Traveler,

I am writing to extend a personal invitation to join me on an exclusive Frontiers hosted departure to Sri Lanka, February 21 - March 6, 2018. This tailor made itinerary is based on my personal explorations of the region, and I am confident that you will find this to be a most rewarding and fascinating journey.

Sri Lanka has a rich Buddhist heritage and is the oldest continually Buddhist country in the world. It is also a country of tropical forests, diverse landscapes and warm, friendly people. Its culture dates back over 3,000 years with beautifully carved palaces and temples worthy of exploration. But this tiny island nation, just 70 miles long and 140 miles wide, offers much more than just its past. It has 15 national parks showcasing an abundance of wildlife, nearly 500,000 acres of lush tea estates, 350 waterfalls, eight UNESCO World Heritage sites and hundreds of villages unspoiled by the beaten tourist track. From the misty hills of Kandy with its sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic to the Cultural Triangle in the central highlands and from the lush tea plantations to the colonial Dutch fort at Galle, we will explore the highlights of this island gem. We will be staying in some of the finest accommodations throughout including the stunning Tea Trails and Cape Weligama on the coast.

For anyone intrigued with all that is exotic and distant, there is little that compares with Sri Lanka. It has a resonance that rings as true and clear as a temple bell. To just say aloud the name is to invite a swelling of long-suppressed wanderlust. Sri Lanka has captured the imaginations of travelers for centuries. In Follow the Equator (1896), Mark Twain described a visit to Ceylon as it was previously known during a lecture tour of the British Empire:

"Dear me, it is beautiful! And most sumptuously tropical, as to character of foliage and opulence of it. 'What though the spicy breezes blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle' - an eloquent line, an incomparable line; it says little, but conveys whole libraries of sentiment, and Oriental charm and mystery, and tropic deliciousness - a line that quivers and tingles with a thousand unexpressed and inexpressible things, things that haunt one and find no articulate voice."

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have and I hope very much that you will plan to join me.
