The place to be this month
Sri Lanka, the island nation just south of India, gets lots of rain, thanks to the monsoons that sweep through in late autumn and late spring. To avoid the downpours – while also enjoying cooler temperatures – visit from now to April. This will mean sunnier beach days on the south coast and clearer views from the ancient monuments in the mountains. But to avoid the highseason crowds, think later in the year. It’ll be wet, but you’ll be rewarded with pockets of seclusion.
