Dubai & Sri Lanka Combo
Today Dubai ranks as the country’s foremost commercial centre; a city whose skyline is constantly undergoing upgrades with new developments providing the infrastructure and facilities needed for a progressive society; including world-class hotels, shopping plazas and outstanding sports facilities. Dubai Creek divides the city centre into two parts; Deira on the northern side and Bur Dubai to the south and each has its fair share of souks, restaurants, hotels, shopping malls as well as fine mosques.
From within these high standards of luxury and convenience; visitors can experience exotic Arabia in the bustling souks or a night in a Bedouin tent with belly-dancing under the starlit desert skies; as well as a way of life that is still embedded in the Islamic traditions of an ancient land. Dubai’s attraction lies in the contrast between the ultra modern and the enchantingly traditional; which gives the city a personality like no other and visitors a variety of experiences to choose from. From desert oases and unspoiled beaches; camel races and old wind towers, to top-class shopping opportunities, avant-garde architecture and the finest international cuisine; Dubai has more than enough depth to satisfy even the most seasoned of travellers.
The ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’, Sri Lanka is a stunningly beautiful island in the Indian Ocean; with an interior of dense tropical jungles framed by sandy golden beaches. The teardrop-shaped island is made up of a mountainous landscape with more than a hundred picturesque waterfalls and innumerable hiking trails leading to breathtaking vistas like the famous World’s End.
Sri Lanka is also home to diverse wildlife, including leopards, monkeys, crocodiles, as well as many species of birds; it is most famous for its elephant population however; and tourists flock to the elephant sanctuaries to get an up-close-and-personal experience with the majestic creatures.
The ancient culture of Sri Lanka is just as fascinating as its natural attractions; and sacred Buddhist cities like Anuradhapura and Panduwasnuwara give visitors the opportunity to visit temples as well as other sacred sites dating back thousands of years.
