Sri Lanka

Why Go: With the conclu­sion of its 26-year-long civil war in 2009, this unexplored gem is just beginning to ap­pear on many travelers’ wish lists, so get there before the crowds arrive.

In Ruins: The island’s ar­cheological ruins, such as the UNESCO-designated Sacred City of Anuradhapura, rival historical sites anywhere. We also recommend Aber­crombie & Kent for its com­prehensive tours, which also include tea plantations and the rich culture in Kandy.

Double the Pleasure: Given Sri Lanka’s close proximity to the Maldives, Bemis suggests that travel­ers pair the two destina­tions: They make a great combination for both explo­ration and relaxation.
