Sri Lanka Travel Information

Obscured by the Goliath that is India, Sri Lanka is something of a hidden gem in Asia. All the better for anyone on Sri Lanka tours, since it means the plethora of lush beaches are left virtually untouched and the unique style of life relatively untainted by droves of tourists.

 

Within its borders Sri Lanka packs in 8 UNESCO Heritage sites, a fascinating culture and some of the best food you’ll ever try. Do not miss out.

Sri Lanka Tours

Obscured by the Goliath that is India, Sri Lanka is something of a hidden gem in Asia. All the better for anyone on Sri Lanka tours, since it means the plethora of lush beaches are left virtually untouched and the unique style of life relatively untainted by troves of tourists.

Sri Lanka tours offer an abundance of things to do thanks to the country's size and diversity. Within a few weeks you can travel the majority of the country, enjoying everything from verdant tea farms to beach side cocktails to meditative Buddhist temples.

Best time of the year to visit Sri Lanka?

Owing to its tropical location, Sri Lanka has distinct wet and dry seasons (as well as a mini monsoon season in each). From May to August the southwest of the island can be battered by monsoons (the rest of the year is mostly dry). In the northeast it's much drier, but between October and November you could encounter monsoon weather.

Food and Culture of Sri Lanka

Perhaps the most overwhelming thing about Sri Lanka is the Buddhist culture of the Sinhalese regions. The teachings of the Buddha inhabit almost every home, while elaborate temples can be found in abundance throughout the country. Buddhism is truly infused within the Sinhalese culture and a visit to any one of the Buddhist temples is highly recommended.

Sri Lankan food may, like the country, live underneath India's looming shadow but that's certainly not owing to a lack of quality. Blending spices, curries, coconut-infused recipes and rice, Sri Lankan food may sound like what you'd find in nearby countries but the taste is truly unique.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka's size means it's fairly easy to visit everything you'd like to see in one tour, and there's no real reason to divide the country into regions. There is, however, an well-trodden path around the country known as the Cultural Triangle.

Cultural Triangle tours feature many of the country's most popular tourist spots. Kandy is central to this region, and is supposedly home to the Buddha's tooth. This leads droves of loyal followers of his teachings to the city and makes it a great jumping off point.

Nearby you can enjoy the epic ruined city of Anuradhapura, a vast medieval Asian city that was once the capital of the island. Walking through the city it's easy to imagine the civilization that once roamed the dusty paths. The energy of the place - as with many of Sri Lanka's most remarkable destinations - is one that will stay with you. The solemn, reflective attitude of the Buddhist monks that once studied in this great city seems to permeate in the air.

Nearby Polonnaruwa is smaller but equally breathtaking, and no-one traveling to Sri Lanka should miss the opportunity to climb Sigiriya - a huge rock that houses ancient markings, elaborate carvings and a huge stone entrance carved into the shape of a lion. It's something out of a Indiana Jones movie.

From here it's easy to travel to Dambulla and Mihintale, which are both worth a visit to understand more about the island's history.

Tours in Sri Lanka will undoubtedly begin and end in Colombo, the nation's vibrant, chaotic capital. On the coastlines of the city you'll find inexpensive, luxurious hotels to relax in, while the streets are lined with restaurants serving up some of Sri Lanka's remarkable dishes.

Panagiotis Giannakis, December 2017

The services of Jagathsingh were very good, but we had only a good driver, no guide-driver. The Hotel at Nuwara Eliya was very bad and very dirty, which changed the day when we arrived at Colombo. To Jagath, more attention, because we spend money there. Generally, all the trip was very good and very organizational. I will propose to my friends to trip in Sri Lanka with Jagath.

Roshara followed up with me on WhatsApp which was convenient for both of us across different timezones. The phone calls are then followed up with emails with an updated itinerary. The tour was tailored to exactly what we wanted with suggestions and advice from Roshara. It was one of the most enjoyable holidays I have had. Sri Lanka has a wide range of activities and experiences. The driver was great and made everything so easy. It was clean and the people so friendly. Staff in all the places we stayed were amazing.
