The country is also popular with backpackers, and Time Out says it’s the perfect size for a week or a month of travel.

According to the global magazine, the country has many destinations worth exploring, including ancient Unesco-listed sites such as Dambulla and Sigiriya and the tea plantations in Nuwara Eliya.

The article added that the golden beaches of Arugam Bay, Mirissa and Hikkaduwa promise beachfront hostels, surfing and delicious local food for travellers.
