There is a wealth of interesting things to do in Sri Lanka on a tailor-made itinerary. A trip to the Cultural Triangle is essential for any first-time visitors; discover the sacred cities of Anuradhapura and Sigiriya, the ancient city of Polonnaruwa and the Golden Temple of Dambulla. Climb to the top of one of Sri Lanka’s most iconic sites, Sigiriya rock fortress, for spectacular views then continue to Kandy, where you can explore the Temple of the Tooth, said to hold the tooth relic of Buddha.
Journey up to the Hill Country for panoramic views and plateau hikes. Nuwara Eliya sits 2,000 metres above sea level and offers a mix of mountains, tea plantations and waterfalls. If you are looking for wildlife viewing, we would recommend visiting Yala National Park, which has one of the highest leopard densities in the world. You can also expect to see elephants, sloth bears, spotted deer, sambar deer, wild pigs, jackals, marsh crocodiles and a variety of birdlife.
End your tailor-made itinerary to Sri Lanka on one of the many beach resorts. You can choose to stay on either the lesser-visited east coast at Passikudah, or on the south coast at Galle, among many others.
