Sipping gin and tonic as the sun goes down over the tea hills is a very special moment indeed.

Christmas abroad is something of a Marmite scenario; some people are pleased as punch to be jetting off to sunnier pastures while for others it would be an act of absolute insanity. If you fall into the former camp, may we point you in the direction of Sri Lanka for your next Christmas getaway...
Sri Lankans are some of the most welcoming people you could wish to meet, which makes for the perfect Christmas getaway - you'll feel just as at home in an old colonial bungalow, surrounded by family and your Sri Lankan hosts, as you would tucked up in the English countryside. Plus, you can bank on the weather being sublime so it's already streaking ahead of Blighty in the race for Christmas. From the pristine beaches of Galle to leopard spotting in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka ticks all the boxes whether you are a spa bunny or an avid adventurer.
