Once called “the finest island for its size in the world” by Marco Polo, Sri Lanka will provide participants many reasons for an extended stay beyond the race weekend with their seductive beaches, magnificent landscapes featuring lazy lagoons, fertile wetlands, ecologically-wondrous types of forest, imposing mountains, bounteous rivers and waterfalls, along with an abundance of wildlife. The New York Times named Sri Lanka the #1 place in the world to visit in 2010.
