Sri Lanka Regions
A coastal city and the heart of Sri Lanka’s commercial district, Colombo is a heady mix of sites, smells, history, heritage and culture. For those arriving late or leaving early, there are a number of brilliant hotels, both in and out of town, for you to break the journey.
The fascinating ancient cities and UNESCO-listed heritage sites of Sri Lanka’s ‘Cultural Triangle’ are a must see for all. Visit the cave temples of Dambulla, Sigiriya Rock Fortress and the stepped pools and stupas of Anuradhapura.
For those looking to venture to a more undiscovered Sri Lankan beach, the east coast of the island is starting to wake up, and welcome new boutique hideaways surrounding the traditional harbour towns of Trincomalee in the north and Pasikuda further south.
Head to Galle Fort and explore the cobbled streets, colonial buildings, and quirky boutiques.
Kandy & Surrounds
The hill-country capital of Kandy and the surrounding area lies on a plain amidst towering hills and looped by Sri Lanka's largest river: the Mahaweli.
Sri Lanka is lucky enough to boasts its own big five – blue whale, sperm whale, leopard, elephant and sloth bear. See the largest mammal on land and in sea within just a few hours of each other.
South West Coast
The Sri Lankan beach scene on the south and west coastline is palm-fringed and low-key, perfect for lazing a few days away. Choose from an array of boutique beach retreats surrounding the Indian Ocean-washed shores and neighbouring fishing villages.
Tea & Hill Country
Sri Lanka’s mesmerizing beauty truly lies in the central regions of the island, where rainforests carpet towering peaks, vast wilderness areas protect a National Geographic-worthy roll call of wildlife and ancient cities rise up in all their historical and cultural glory.
