I have lots of articles about Sri Lanka coming up, from the beautiful palm-fringed beaches to the cultural heritage sites; from the luscious green hills of the tea country to the charming Dutch-Portuguese colonial town of Galle, from wildlife and scrumptious Sri Lankan food to more practical information like how much it costs to travel in Sri Lanka and the best places to stay.

But first, let me introduce you to the small ‘Pearl Of The Indian Ocean’ that swept me off my feet (completely unexpected!) a couple of months ago – here are some interesting facts and my first impressions of Sri Lanka:

The Pearl Of The Indian Ocean: Facts & Figures

I was surprised when I found out how many people didn’t know where exactly Sri Lanka was, which is why I’ll start with this handy map:Sri Lanka Map

Sri Lanka sits just southeast of India – at the narrowest point, only 65 kilometers divide the two countries. There used to be a ferry service between India and Sri Lanka, but at the moment, it isn’t running. The country of 21 million people is 25,332sq miles /65,610 sq km large, that compares to the size of West Virginia, or about the size of Ireland or Tasmania. Thanks to its pearl shape, the island is often called ‘Pearl Of The Indian Ocean’.
