Sri Lanka also contains an astonishing seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites within its compact shores, the same number as heritage-packed Egypt. Six cultural sites are testament to a civilization with over 2,000 years of recorded history, while a seventh natural site boasts some of the highest biodiversity found outside the Amazon basin.
Experiencing these heritage sites takes you on a spiritual journey that will uplift and amaze, inspire and refresh. The island's compact dimensions mean that it is possible to combine a visit to several of these marvels in the Cultural Triangle during even the briefest of visits.

As well as holidays in Sri Lanka, we can also arrange private tailor-made tours and Weddings in Sri Lanka. Holidays in Sri Lanka can also be combined with holidays in Dubai and holidays in Maldives. Please contact us for more information.

While it will be impossible to see everything Sri Lanka has to offer in a single trip, just some of the country's highlights are detailed below:

Anuradhapura
From immense dagobas to mysterious forest monasteries, this vast ruined city bears witness to the great Sinhalese civilization which flourished for almost 2000 years.

Bentota
The pleasantly unspoilt southern end of Bentota beach is home to the island's finest select of luxury beachside hotels.

Galle
Sri Lanka's most perfectly preserved colonial townscape with sedate streets of personable Dutch villas enclosed by a chain of imposing ramparts.

Kandy
Beautifully situated amidst the central highlands, the historic city remains the island's most important repository of Sinhalese culture, illustrated by the Esela Perahera festival and the Temple of the Tooth Relic.

Pinnewela Elephant Orphanage
One of the island's most popular attractions, Pinnewala is home to the world's large troupe of captive elephants, from dignified elderly matriarchs to the cutest of babies.

Polonnaruwa
Home to the island's finest collection of ancient Sinhalese art and architecture, from the giant Buddha statues of the Gal Vihara to the remarkable religious buildings of the Quadrangle.

Sigiriya
Sri Lanka's most remarkable sight, this towering rock outcrop is home to the fascinating remains of one of the island's former capitals, complete with ancient graffiti, elaborate water gardens, a giant lion statue and perfectly preserved frescoes of voluptuous heavenly nymphs.

Yala National Park
Sri Lanka's most popular and rewarding national park is home to birds, monkeys, crocodiles and elephants, as well as the island's largest population of leopards.

Please note: Sea conditions mean that water sports are usually operated on lagoons only. During the Monsoon season (West coast May - September, East coast November - February) seas can be rough with strong undercurrents. Sea bathing is therefore inadvisable.

Visa Required
No.

Vaccinations
Polio, Tetanus, Hepatitis A are recommended. A Yellow Fever certificate is essential if you are arriving from an infected area.
