Places to visit

Sri Lanka is a destination that’s packed with amazing destinations to explore; from its vast 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 one of the country’s lush national parks for an unforgettable safari. Head to Wilpattu National Park to catch a glimpse of leopards, water buffalo and even crocodiles, accompanied by an expert guide. 

When it comes to Sri Lanka sightseeing, a tour of the Tea Country from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya is a must, particularly when you travel by the famous cross-country train for unparalleled views of the surrounding countryside. Kandy also features many incredible temples, and if you visit at the right time, you can watch an authentic religious ceremony. Meanwhile, Nuwara Eliya is home to several waterfalls and stunning hiking spots. 

Those keen to learn more about Sri Lanka’s rich heritage should pay a visit to the historic colonial port of 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, the rest of the south coast is the paradise that’s waiting for you.
