Sri Lanka is undoubtedly a destination that’s packed full of beautiful places to explore; from its vast and tranquil tea plantations to the powder-soft beaches lining its southern coast. With so much to see and do though, it can be tricky to decide where to visit in Sri Lanka - but luckily, our destination experts are on hand to help.
If you’re looking for a trip that’s all about adventure, you can’t miss a visit to the Cultural Triangle and Sigirya Rock Fortress - possibly one of the most iconic sites in the country. A steep climb to the top will grant you spectacular views of the landscape below, and you might even spot resident wildlife along the way - including elephants.
A tour of the Tea Country from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya is also a must, particularly when you travel by the famous cross-country train, providing unparalleled views of the surrounding countryside. Kandy also features many incredible temples, and if you visit at the right time, you can witness an authentic religious ceremony. Meanwhile, Nuwara Eliya is home to several waterfalls and stunning hiking spots.
Those keen to sightsee should pay a visit to the historic Galle, with its charming cobbled streets and impressive fort. But, if all you want to do is relax on a glorious beach, cocktail in hand, Mirissa Beach is the paradise that’s waiting for you.
