Sri Lankan culture is an amalgamation of diverse cultural patterns both indigenous and derived from, trade, religions, as well as, western colonization. The cultural patterns of Sri Lanka today show the lasting impact of a diverse range of cultures.
The overall culture is largely the result of the impact of the introduction of Buddhism, more than 2,300 years ago. This does not remove the heavy influence of Hinduism, together with the lesser impact of Islam, Zoroastrianism, and Christianity, in addition to the pre-Buddhist worship of deities and animism, some of which still remain in the traditions and rituals of the country.

When to go
Climatically the driest and best seasons are from December to March on the west and south coasts and in the hill country, and from May to September on the east coast
It does not rain all the time. Reefs may protect a beach area and make swimming quite feasible at places like Hikkaduwa, which during the monsoon can be quite pleasant.

Average temperatures are: January/March 22° - 28°C; April/June 27° - 30°C; July/September 25° - 28°C; October/December 20° - 25°C. Temperatures in the highlands are normally some 7° - 9° cooler. The main High Season is November/April, when the weather is normally settled and sea conditions permit watersports. May/August is the usual monsoon period on the west coast

Sri LankaGetting There

Colombo is the international gateway for direct flights from Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

Major attractions
Colombo(capital city) : Colombo, the island's largest city, is noisy, wild - and just a little crazy. The city is made up of 15 small towns, each of them being unique. One such town Maradana is perhaps the most densely populated areas within the whole country. In stark contrast the fort area is almost completely devoid of houses or apartments. Many of the high rises in the country are concentrated near the Fort, which gets its name from being a British fortress in the 19th Century.
To the north of the centre is the Fort district, the country's business centre. South is Galle Face Green, a seafront expanse of occasional green graced by cricket games and trysting lovers. Cinammon Gardens, further south, is the most fashionable neighbourhood, with mansions and tree-lined streets.

Sri Lanka Beaches Sri Lanka Beaches : Over one thousand kilometers of palm fringed sandy beaches encircle the Island. Sri Lanka is never out of season for a beach holiday. There is always some part of the beach that has friendly and warm waters. The beach resorts in the North Coast, West Coast, East Coast and the South Coast are popular among the tourists who enjoy taking a dip in the warm waters and relaxing on the sandy beach.
The important beaches in the country are:
North Coast - Jaffna beach, Mannar Island
West Coast - Negombo beach, Mount Lavinia
East Coast - Batticaloa beach, Trincomalee beach, Nilaveli beach, Arugam bay
