Private Organization Tour For Travel Professionals – WITIA

Sri Lanka 2014 Educational & AGM

13 - 21 September 2014

sri lankaJoin us for this year’s WITIA Educational in Sri Lanka, the erstwhile Ceylon of tea and legend, 13-21 September 2014. Our host and organizer is Varini DeSilva, President of Ceylon Express International.

Here, on one small island off the southeast coast of India, is a gemlike country that is anything but ‘ho hum’. Tropical vistas of soaring mountains, verdant hills, riotous blooms and long sandy beaches delight the eye. Colonial era buildings in genteel decline; ancient Buddhist monuments carved in stone; the rose-bushed, English-gardened homes of suburbia; the ramshackle, helter skelter dwellings of a steamy society – all will feature prominently in the YouTube of your memory. The singsong cadences of the Sinhalese, the staccato rhythms of the Tamil, the bright saris of leaf pickers waist-deep in emerald tea bushes, the strong sun glimmering off white teeth in dark faces, the languor of warm days spent pondering elephants, the throb of traffic, the enticement of shops and galleries filled with exotica, the scent of spice and life and history and excitement – give in! You want to come with us! You NEED to come with us!

Between the devastation of the 2004 tsunami and the long-running civil war that was finally resolved in 2009, Sri Lankan tourism has struggled for many a year. Yet even during sectarian violence, tourists still came – such was the allure of this magical place! – and the conflict actually helped to preserve both wildlife and the land itself. It’s peaceful now, and beautiful. Our itinerary is below.
