Sri Lanka, the paradise island off the southern coast of India is a tourist destination filled with so many attractions that even the longest holiday may not seem long enough for you to enjoy it as you wish. But a fortnight is just sufficient time for you to actually enjoy each of those tourist attractions without having to rush past all of them due to lack of enough time. Sri Lanka itinerary 14 days, if planned out thoroughly could end up being the most memorable vacation of all for you. The cultural triangle of Sri Lanka is not to be missed with such a wealth of ancient sites in the island confined to those three ends.
