Sri Lanka

Can’t locate Sri Lanka on a map? Find the tear drop-shaped island just off the southern tip of India, and voilà. Buddhism arrived in 250 B.C.; Hinduism took hold sometime later. Ancient Sri Lankans had a knack for designing ingenious reservoirs, dams, and aqueducts, and they were crack mathematicians. The island was an important part of the Silk Road, not only for its deep natural harbor, but also for its native spices. Today, the island boasts an astonishing eight UNESCO World Heritage sites.
