The USA Today has ranked Sri Lanka as the top destination, among 20 countries, for winter travel.
“Jetsetters looking for something off the beaten tourist path should consider Sri Lanka,” USA Today said.
“An overlooked gem, this exotic island in the Indian Ocean seduces everyone who steps foot with its stunning unspoiled wilderness, colorful history, and flavorful cuisine.”
Due to the proximity and a lack of crowds, it’s possible to pack a lot into a trip to Sri Lanka, it added.
