Begin by exploring the awe-inspiring relics of Sri Lanka’s ancient history. Visit Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka’s first kingdom which dates back to 1st century BC; climb the awe-inspiring Sigiriya Rock Fortress; wend your way through Ritigala Strict Nature Reserve in search of a 2,000-year-old Buddhist monastery, and see Dambulla Cave Temple, Sri Lanka’s largest cave temple complex which houses an astonishing 153 Buddha statues. Next, head to Kandy and explore the Royal Botanical Gardens, which are home to a vast array of fascinating plant species from all around the world. Take a guided tour through the city’s thriving streets and see the renowned Temple of the Tooth, Sri Lanka’s most famous Buddhist temple which houses a relic said to be the tooth of Lord Buddha.
Journey into Sri Lanka’s majestic hill country, a land of rolling green tea fields as far as the eye can see where you can take a tour of a tea plantation or go for walks and treks which will culminate in spectacular views. Finally, head south in search of Sri Lanka’s big game at Yala National Park, which has one of the highest densities of leopards in the world, as well as being home to elephants, Sloth Bear and many different species of bird. Finish your holiday on the stunning beaches of the south coast and spend a day exploring the enchanting streets of 17th century Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site originally constructed by the Portuguese and heavily fortified by the Dutch colonial powers centuries later.
