Located at the southern tip of the Indian continent, Sri Lanka evokes tea plantations on the mountainside, infinite beaches bordered by coconut palms, mysterious cities buried in the jungle and precious sapphires.

The majority of Sri Lankans are Buddhists, and their lives revolve around many ritual practices. The Hindu, Muslim and Christian minorities live alongside them, not without clashes.

Sri Lanka, which Marco Polo described as a pearl in the middle of the ocean, seduces by the gentleness of its landscapes, the diversity and luxuriance of its vegetation, the splendour of its ancient cities, but also by the hospitality of its inhabitants.
