Holidays in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka holidays offer a huge variety; pristine beaches, hilltop plantations, ancient cities, cave temples and an extraordinary abundance of wildlife. Sun seekers will love Sri Lanka the incredible beaches where you can laze around and soak up some sun. For those seeking a little more adventure there are numerous Sri lanka tours, activities and sights to keep you occupied.
Sri Lanka has an abundance of historical sights to explore; the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya has been declared a world heritage site, whilst Galle is a classic example of a European fortified city in southern Asia. In the lush tropical heart of the island, Kandy was a stronghold of the Sinhalese kings until it fell to the British in 1815 and became a centre of the tea trade. Kandy’s cultural heritage far pre-dates the British tea drinkers: in the Dalda Maligawa, or Temple of the Tooth, one of Buddha's teeth is kept as a sacred relic, putting it among the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in the world. High among the hilly tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya, the tiny hill resort of Hatton makes an excellent base for exploring the surrounding country.
For those who wish to combine a relaxing break on the beach with sightseeing and wildlife spotting we offer Sri Lanka Multi Centre holidays where you can stay in more than one area of the island. Alternatively you can combine your Sri Lanka holidays with a stay in another country such as Dubai or the Maldives.
