A tropical Island full of romantic landscapes, striking mountains, lush green tea gardens and golden beaches. It is nothing short of magnificent.
Sri Lanka, a teardrop-shaped tropical island set in the Indian Ocean in South Asia, has a rich cultural heritage and untouched beauty in its landscapes; lying home to 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites, there is no wonder it has become a beloved destination for new and seasoned travellers alike. Buddhist temples and stone buildings which have witnessed centuries of history and colonial rule within the nation lie still as a product of the past, while the numerous tea plantations prove popular as an educational and cultural site to visit, producing the original and completely unique aromas and taste of Ceylon Black Tea. Colombo, the capital lying just south of the Kelani river, is the perfect destination to indulge in a typical Sri Lankan aromatic breakfast, from the likes of kiri bath to pol roti, followed by a visit to the architectural ruins of Gangaramaya Temple.
A Kingdom of purity and beauty, mountains and monestaries, rich biodiversity and pristine forests.
Settled between the borders of Tibet and India, the landlocked kingdom of Bhutan is nestled in the eastern Himalayas, and is favoured for its enchanting landscapes and rich cultural heritage. Visiting the capital city, Thimphu, you’ll witness a balance of history and sustainability which is unparalleled elsewhere; Bhutan only allows a limited number of tourists each year, preserving its pristine beauty and making it a haven for nature enthusiasts. The King's dwellings in the Tashichho Dzong, make it a must-see in the capital city, while the Kingdom itself is also home to ancient monasteries that stand as testaments to its deep-rooted Bhutanese Buddhist traditions. The Paro Taktsang, or Tiger's Nest Monastery, perched precariously on a cliffside, is a spiritual and architectural marvel that draws pilgrims and tourists alike, and simultaneously showcases to many the Kingdom’s bountiful untouched natural sights.
Steeped in scenic beauty and snow-topped peaks, this is the original land of peace and serenity; a paradise on earth.
