Sri Lanka Holidays

BEAUTY AND CULTURE ROUND EVERY CORNER

Uncrowded beaches? Check. Ancient ruins? Check. Wildlife safaris, sumptuous cuisine and rolling tea plantations? Check, check and check. A Sri Lanka holiday packs a big punch for a small island.

This small island offers travellers a plethora of delights – historical, cultural and natural, all without travelling too far. Immerse yourself in Colombo’s street market or Negombo’s fish market, marvel at the World Heritage-listed ruins of Anuradhapura, climb to the top of the Sigiriya Rock fortress and spot elephants or perhaps leopards on an exhilarating game drive in Yala National Park. The cuisine is delicious and unique, a must for lovers of fresh seafood.

The food in all places was great! Particularly enjoyed our local lunches and the cooking demonstration.
I enjoyed the safaris in Yala NP but found the number of jeeps during the morning trip disturbing, particularly the traffic jam of 40 odd jeeps all trying to see one leopard - which we did not. Also a similar problem on our whale watching excursion - 7hrs trying to find a whale in choppy seas with the final hour chasing a whale with 18 other boats. Poor whale.
