Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Colombo.
Transfer to Negombo and explore its network of 17th century, Dutch canals, built in the 17th century to transport cinnamon and other spices to the coast. Walk along the canalside footpaths or ride a boat on the water and watch everyday life drift by. For an interesting day trip, hop in a boat and sail the Muthurajawela Marsh, looking out for kingfishers and herons. Negombo is also well known for its fish market, where you can watch fresh catches being auctioned off and see the fishermen in action.
Continue to Sigiriya, where you’ll climb the towering rock fortress and discover the five magnificent cave temples found deep within the rocks of Dambulla, all filled with exquisite paintings and intricate statues. Afterwards, walk around the crumbling ruins of Polonnaruwa, a World Heritage site laden with Buddha statues and stone carvings, as well as being crossed by some beautiful irrigation canals.
Stop off at the delightful spice gardens on the outskirts of Kandy, learning about their properties and tasting a refreshing cup of herbal tea. Later on, tour the city itself, visiting the famous Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, and taking a stroll along the tranquil lakeshore to admire flowers and appreciate the cool breezes. In the evening, you’ll listen to some traditional music and drumming and watch the costumed dancers at a Sri Lankan cultural show.
Return to Colombo and depart for the UK.
