The deal
  • 6D5N tour for 1 for $588 (worth $798)

6D5N Tour of Matale, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, and Colombo
Traverse a smorgasbord-like sampling of the vibrant amalgam of Sri Lanka’s lands and city sprawl; taking in sights of the country’s historical splays and varied urban centres as well as verdant nature tracts as your English-speaking guide helms travels.
Upon arrival, settle in at three-star accommodation awaiting in Kandy; prior to the evening beckoning guests upon sights of flaming fandangos and daring dances of native cultural performances featuring dances (of fire and burning passion alike) hailing from traditional Sri Lankan annals.
Subsequently, follow next-day travels as they bring you to the natural reserve of the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, yielding views of playful pachyderms in their element – whether bathing in the river or being fed by the park’s keepers. Beyond elephantine entertainment, bask in the greenery of the Royal Botanical Gardens of Peradeniya, home to a plethora of orchids and up to 4,000 species of flora including various spices, medicinal plants, palm trees, and more.
Finishing up breakfast, travellers are then brought over to Nuwara Eliya – otherwise known as the “Little England” of Sri Lanka, resplendent with Tudor-styled homes eclipsed by nearby wonders of nature including cascading waterfalls, in addition to ubiquitous tea plantations comprising the native mainstay.
Next-day excursions bring travellers into Sri Lanka’s southwest coast, delving into immersive views of the St. Clair waterfall – dubbed the ‘Little Niagara of Sri Lanka’, with wide coursing waters splashing down three extruding boulders and cascading into the pool below. Following green-tinged scenery amid the falls’ surrounding tea plantations, subsequent travels then bring you to an evening of leisure by the beach prior to retreating to hotel comforts for the night.
The city sprawl awaits travellers next as the tour makes a stop in Colombo, a city as fragmented as it is varied with local street market shopping haunts propped against a backdrop of verdant gardens, mansions, shopping malls, and fine dining outlets. Among sites of interest here are the Colombo Fort Clock Tower, a hundred-year old structure; as well as Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple – home to a museum-like assortment of novelties on display, from vintage cars to an old decommissioned locomotive housed alongside rows of ornamental Buddhas and stone idols.
