Sri Lanka, an island country located on the Indian Ocean, offers incredible vistas and spectacular sights to its visitors. Plan your itinerary from the comforts of one of the hotel rooms in Colombo belonging to properties such as Mandarina Colombo Hotel and look forward to experiencing the best of Sri Lanka within seven days.
Day One and Two
Discover Colombo on a four-hour Tuk ride and visit famous attractions such as the Gangaramaya Temple on the first day. On your second day, consider travelling to Habarana for a safari at the Minneriya National Park. Leave early from Colombo to explore Dambulla Cave Temple along the way, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Next Two Days
On your third day, plan on climbing the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, which is another UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will be amazed by its beautiful frescoes and the ancient hydraulic technology of this place. The next day, pay homage to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic in Kandy, the cultural capital of Sri Lanka.
Day Five and Six
Kick start your fifth day by leaving from Kandy towards Ella, experiencing one of the most scenic train rides in the world. During these two days, make time to climb the Ella Rock and hike towards Little Adam’s Peak to be mind blown by the breathtaking vistas of their surroundings.
Head over to Negombo and relax in its beautiful beaches, drinking in the views of the setting sun. Located close to Bandaranaike International Airport, it’d be a convenient destination for your last day in the country.
