Visiting Sri Lanka

Sinhala is spoken by about 16 million speakers and is the official language of Sri Lanka. Set in the Indian Ocean in South Asia, the tropical island nation of Sri Lanka has a history dating back to the birth of time. It is a place where the original soul of Buddhism still flourishes and where nature’s beauty remains abundant and unspoiled.

Few places in the world can offer the traveler such a remarkable combination of stunning landscapes, pristine beaches, captivating cultural heritage and unique experiences within such a compact location. It is a great benefit to learn the main language, Sinhala. Within a mere area of just over 25,000 square miles lie eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, more than 820 miles of coastline — much of it pristine beaches — 15 national parks showcasing an abundance of wildlife, nearly 500,000 acres of lush tea estates, 250 acres of botanical gardens, 350 waterfalls, 25,000 water bodies, to a culture that extends back to over 2,500 years. This is an island of magical proportions, once known as Serendib, Taprobane, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, and Ceylon.

Sinhala-speaking Countries

Sinhala is also spoken in the islands of Maldives.

 Here are some of the basic Sinhala phrases that you will use often:

  • Sama venna. (Excuse me.)
  • Ehekka keeyada? (How much is it?)
  • Dumriya pala (train station)
