Travel South India and Sri Lanka
Although both South India and Sri Lanka both have lots of oceanfront and beaches, grow tea in the highlands, and have a long history of trading and commerce, there are many differences between these two areas. This trip combines some of the hallmarks of both Sri Lanka and South India – visits to Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Jewish sites from Polonnaruwa to the synagogue in Cochin, opportunities to see and actually practice local crafts, touring with some of the top country experts, a backwater cruise and time in national parks. When you finish this very special journey, you will have a good sense of two very special countries and their unique place in the world.
