Description:   This enigmatic country which in recent times has been greatly maligned is in fact a gem of a tourist destination. If you are tired of the normal beach and city experience and fancy something completely different then this would be your best bet. There are many wonderful old temples and castles and even the modern architecture has its own merits. All tourists require a visa and will travel through from the South.
