Sri Lanka Travel Guide

Why Sri Lanka?

Why Sri Lanka?

Why Sri Lanka?

From its dreamy beaches to its majestic ruins and jaw-droppingly beautiful World Heritage sites, Sri Lanka is a country rich in culture and history, meaning that the places to explore are endless and the activity options varied. While finding something for the whole family to enjoy will never be a problem here, be warned that narrowing down the list might be! 

How long does it take to travel around Sri Lanka?

Sri Lanka's road network has improved over the years, with a new highway being built between Colombo and Galle making journeys to and from the main beach resorts quicker. In 2015 the road connecting from the airport to Colombo should be completed making journey time to the West Coast resorts much quicker.

It is safer to use our private guides to take you around Sri Lanka, as there are not very strict road laws. Below is a guide on popular travel times:
