Your destinations

Sri Lanka

With 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites to be found on such a small area of land and a 2,000 year old culture, Sri Lanka is as fascinating as it is beautiful. A destination that is often skipped by many a traveller on their trips to India or Asia, Sri Lanka remains one of the Indo-Asian best kept secrets. Visit its ancient sites and marvel over its legendary temples, or see the sacred home of the world’s oldest living tree, Anuradhapura.


Take a tour in one of Sri Lanka’s national parks to encounter elephants, leopards, water buffaloes, and exotic birds, or spend the day relaxing on the dazzlingly white, often untrodden, beaches. Try your hand at a little surfing or retreat up into the Sri Lankan hills to experience a more temperate climate and the lavish greenery of the tea plantations. In addition, you can even trek through the rainforests with an experienced guide or just take in the breathtaking vistas on a spectacular train ride. With fabulously flavoursome food and a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, Sri Lanka promises to be one of your best-loved travel destinations, where the charm of the people will simply enchant you.


Kandy is the former royal capital of Ceylon, and was listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1988. The city is renowned for its iconic Temple of the Tooth, which is said to contain the tooth of Buddha. Don't miss the gorgeous botanical gardens of Royal Botanic Gardens in Peradeniya, with its astonishing collection of orchids, just 5.5 km to the west of Kandy city.


Negombo is a coastal city located about 37km north of Colombo, Sri Lanka's commercial capital. It is home to a large fishing community that has been in operation for centuries, making it a hub for fresh seafood. The city is also famous for its long, sandy beach, which attracts visitors from all over the world. Negombo has a rich history, and visitors can explore landmarks such as the Dutch Fort and the St. Mary's Church. Additionally, the city is located close to Bandaranaike International Airport, making it a convenient place to start or end a trip to Sri Lanka.
