The Phoneographer Explores: Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has a documented history that spans over 3,000 years, but there are facts to suggest that Sri Lanka had pre-historic human settlements dating back to at least 125,000 years.  Its geographic location and deep harbours made it of great strategic importance from the time of the ancient Silk Road through to World War II.  Sri Lanka is a diverse country, home to many religions, ethnicities and languages.

An undiscovered island, you might say Sri Lanka has been hiding in plain sight. Countless scores of travellers have passed overhead on their way to someplace else, but years of war and challenges such as tsunamis have kept Sri Lanka off many itineraries.

But now – as you’ve probably heard – the war is over and Sri Lanka’s looking up. If you’ve ‘done’ India, grown blasé about Southeast Asia or simply want to explore a place whose appeal and pleasures are myriad, then it’s time you dropped in.
