Sri Lanka is one of the best countries in the world to spend your holiday with your family with hassle free travel. The whole family can enjoy an unforgettable tropical vacation exploring the culture, heritage, beaches, safari’s and beautiful mountain landscapes! Sri Lanka is the perfect country to travel with children as the distance between one location and another is not time consuming or hectic. The kids would have many activities to take part in! We know (from experience) that if the children are not enjoying their holiday then neither are their parents. Sri Lanka being and island is almost a Micro Image of South Asia but without Winter and Snow or any large Desert areas. The families can enjoy holidays throughout the year and in average the climate is similar to European Summer.
