Your Destinations

Sri Lanka is a lush, tropical island in the Indian Ocean, where the original soul of Buddhism still flourishes and where nature’s beauty remains abundant and unspoilt.

Offering an amazingly varied landscape, Sri Lanka is home to nine World Heritage Sites (the oldest dating back to the 3rd Century BC), a colourful array of flora and fauna in 14 National Parks, and an Indian Ocean coastline boasting palm-fringed, sandy tropical beaches.

On this tour you will visit some of the island's most popular sights including Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, the royal city of Kandy, the tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya and the capital city, Colombo.
The Maldives archipelago consists of 1190 tiny islands scattered across the Indian Ocean.  The atolls are composed of live coral reefs and sand bars perched atop a 960km submarine ridge, while the land features lush tropical vegetation with abundant local coconut palms.

The Maldives is renowned for its incredible diving opportunities. The crystal clear water and shallow lagoons are perfect for snorkelling, while the reef walls offer a kaleidoscope of sea life for more experienced divers.

The local culture features a lively mix of South Indian, Sinhalese and Arab influences that is reflected in the traditional music, cuisine and art of the island.

Kandy is a lovely city, the Hill Capital and last stronghold of the Sinhala Kings retains an aura of grandeur, which time has not affected.

Kandy and its satellite villages is the center of the island’s handicraft industry and its traditional dances are the most spectacular in the country.

Temple of the Tooth Relic is a Buddhist temple in the City of Kandy. It is considered the foremost sacred place of worship in the Buddhist World. According to legend, the tooth was taken from the Buddha as he lay on  his  funeral  pyre.  It  immediately  became  an  object  of  great  reverence  and  was  enshrined  in  a  series  of nested   jeweled   reliquaries.   On   the   outside,   the   temple   buildings   are   not   magnificent   or   elaborately decorated. While with red roofs, they cluster around Kandy Lake. In striking contrast to the plain exterior, the interiors of the temple buildings are richly carved and decorated with inlaid woods, ivory and lacquer. The relic of the tooth is kept in a two story inner shrine fronted by two large elephant tusks.

After that, witness a Cultural Dance performance in the evening. These classical dance forms are associated with the performance of various rituals and ceremonies which are centuries old and are based on the folk religion and folk beliefs going back to times before the advent and acceptance of Buddhism by the Sinhalese people in the third century B.C.
