Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) is a tropical island, rising from sandy beaches though lush forests to cool hill towns spread with tea plantations that, in quieter times, made Sri Lanka famous. The population is overwhelmingly Buddhist, and ancient traditions are still practiced at holy sites scattered across the island. "Lanka" also has a variety of World Heritage sites, from the picturesque hill town of Kandy to the Portuguese fortifications of Galle and monastery-strewn ruins of Anuradhapura.
