In all of Asia, Sri Lanka triumphs over others when it comes to the 3Cs – culture, coastline and cost. Few places have as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and 2000 years of history crammed unto a small island. And the beaches that ring the island are long golden stretches of little known perfection. Best of all, couples will love how a wedding in Sri Lanka can be wonderfully luxurious yet affordable.
90 kilometres outside of Colombo is the ‘City of Gems’ – Ratnapura. Here, mining for gems has remained the same since the days of Alexander The Great and the breathtaking scenery surrounding the city makes it worthy of a day trip.
Trendy couples take note! Stratford Avenue in Colombo is fast becoming a hip district filled with boutiques, art galleries, cafes and a spa.
