9-Nights Sri Lanka Multi-Active
Sri Lanka – or Lanka the Blessed in the local Sinhalese – has been seducing travellers for centuries. Golden beaches, hilltop rock temples, lush rainforests, vanished empires and stunning highland tea plantations make up the colourful mosaic that is Sri Lanka, all of it hiding in plain sight for you to discover. Despite a tragic and tumultuous recent history, Sri Lanka is emerging as a top international must-visit country, yet remains relatively uncrowded and unexplored. Come with us on an adventure on two feet and on two wheels through this tropical island paradise with a cultural, ethnic, physical and historical diversity that will astound, seduce and surprise.

Sri Jayawardhanapura Kotte is the capital of Sri Lanka, with the newly built parliament situated in picturesque surroundings, while Colombo is the main commercial capital city, where almost all the business transactions take place. Studded with high-rise buildings, modern five star hotels, modern convention centers and a Stock Exchange Centre, Colombo continues to be the hub of commercial activities.
This capital city has a colorful history and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The most popular historical site here is the 300 year old Dutch clock tower and fort that has stood since the early sixteenth century, through the Colonial periods of the Portuguese, Dutch and British. Shopping wise, visitors will be astonished by the beautiful wooden masks locals carve and paint by hand, and the hand-made lace. They are truly works of art.
The city lies in the Kandy Valley with its beautiful tropical plantations. The city is home to many attractively adorned temples and palaces including the Lankatilaka temple, which is decorated with delicate floral designs and paintings. In August, Kandy hosts an extravagant Buddhist festival consisting of food, cultural dancing, and richly decorated elephants.
