Sri Lanka Short Holiday Surrounded by Culture
This four night/five day tour has been designed to reveal an insight to the cultural heritage of Sri Lanka in a brief, but not hurried, visit. It begins with a relaxing night to recover from the flight at a hotel within a short drive of the International Airport in the seaside resort town of Negombo. The town has plenty of restaurants and bars and is a relaxed introduction to a tourist part of Sri Lanka.
In contrast, Sri Lanka’s early history is reflected in the ruins that remain of Anuradhapura, a sacred city begun in the 4th century BC and venerated as the capital of Buddhism in the island. This tour is based for two nights in hotels in the lush parkland of Habarana where plentiful birdlife is to be seen. Another contrast comes with the final night in the bustling city of Kandy, good for shopping as well as heritage visiting.
