Plan a Gap Year to Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is a very safe region of the world to visit on a gap year, it is very rare to hear of any problems with tourists but research local customs and dress respectably. Where you go and what you do really comes down to personal choice, we highly recommend booking a tour, working with elephants in Sri Lanka or volunteering with sea turtles. One of the best things about taking a gap year in Sri Lanka is the great value for money compares to other destinations in Asia and worldwide - the price of sightseeing and accommodation is very cheap.
