Following the successful series ‘Alexander Armstrong in South Korea’ which aired last year, Alexander Armstrong returns to set off on another adventure of a lifetime, this time exploring Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is the pearl of the Indian ocean, known for its verdant tea hills, ancient ruins and fiery cuisine - and thousands of elephants! Alexander Armstrong explores this extraordinary, beautiful island from top to toe.
But beyond the guidebook tour lies the paradise island with a huge history of strength and resilience. From civil wars, natural disasters and the crisis of 2022 that saw 700,000 people storm the President's home – Alexander is also on a quest to find out what makes Sri Lanka a nation that has not only been through the mill, but knows how to bounce back.
