Holiday Overview

The story of Sri Lanka’s arts and crafts comes from one of the oldest civilisations in the world, dating back thousands of years and firmly rooted in traditional culture. Its colours, sounds, rhythms and shapes run through the course of history. The island’s artistic flair never fails to amaze. From the art of puppetry and drum-making to cave paintings and rock sculptures, the ancient kingdoms of the nation provide stunning evidence of skilful artistry from bygone eras. Kandyan dancers, folklore masks, handloom fabric, Batik, Beeralu lace making, and lacquer work are all unique to the island.
