Sri Lanka. A name that calls to mind the exotic and mysterious. This is a land of jungles inhabited by leopards and elephants, wondrous ruins of the great civilizations of ages past, and a modern city, Colombo, where western technology is superimposed on the passion of a traditional Asian metropolis. Originally known as Ceylon, the island became famous for producing the world’s finest teas. Bright fragrant spices, sparkling sapphires, and the colorful trappings of a variety of ceremonies and religious festivals make this a most rewarding destination. Today, Colombo is a bustling mix of diverse races and religions, and contrasts of old and new. The tangible history of the city is a unique mix of relics from its Portuguese, Dutch and English settlements, blended with Indian influences throughout.

Day 15 Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates VX

Three bridges link the island capital of the Arab Emirates to the Persian Gulf shore. Once renowned for pearls and piracy, today it is the richest place on earth. The corniche is the city’s showplace, with a walking park along the beachfront, but it gets hot! The huge white Sheikh Zhayed mosque is a must-see site for visitors. Built to exquisite standards, it boasts the largest hand-made Persian rug on earth. Its gleaming marble spaces with mesmerizing crystal chandeliers can welcome 41,000 worshippers. Modest dress is a must, and even so, women may be asked to don a provided cover-all abaya during their visit. The impressive Emirates Palace hotel is another exercise in sumptuous elegance, seemingly dedicated to the appreciation of decorative gold and crystal. A visit to the city’s unique Falcon Hospital is both entertaining and educational. For a lesson in Emirati history, the multi-media Qasr al Hosn museum is a good choice.

Day 17 Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates is strategically located at the crossroads of East and West, and the traditional trading routes from Asia and the Far East to Europe and further afield are even more significant today than they were hundreds of years ago. Nestled at the very heart of the Islamic world, the country is unique in its embrace of the Western world. Here you can see the contrasts of the nomadic Bedouin people, and the opulence and splendor of the Sheiks, set against a backdrop of Western lifestyles.
