Mar 14, Colombo: The National Geographic Traveller, one of the most widely read magazines in the world, has featured Sri Lanka in its UK edition.
Highlighting 21 must-see places, the magazine features the Indian Ocean island in a 36-page supplement to the April 2013 issue.
The magazine describing Sri Lanka as a cast away off the tip of India says the writers who often refer to it as 'India in miniature' fail to grasp that the tear drop shaped island has a fervent personality all of its own.
"From tea plantations, to 'rice and curry', Ayurveda and spice gardens, Buddhist monks and more, Sri Lanka is emerging as a gem in the rough," the National Geographic Traveller tells.
Among the highlighted places in Sri Lanka are Dumbara Hills for trekking, Mirissa Beach for serene views and Adam's Peak.
