Win a 7-night holiday in Sri Lanka!

Fishing Boat, Sri Lanka

**This competition is now CLOSED and was won by David Hildreth**

To celebrate the publication of our lovely new Sri Lanka Handbook, we've teamed up with SriLankan Airlines and Lion Royal Tourisme to offer one lucky winner a fantastic 7-night holiday for two on this beautiful island.

Sri Lanka is home to an intoxicating mix of cultures, landscapes and history. Many travellers are lured here by images of palm-fringed beaches, leopards stalking through lush jungle, or sari-clad tea pickers weaving their way through contours of deep green tea bushes. Yet the source of Sri Lanka's irresistible charm lies deeper, in the way it interweaves modernity with agelessness, human creativity with wild beauty.
