Destinations in Sri Lanka

  • Balapitiya


    In Sri Lanka's Southern Province, two hours' drive from capital Colombo, Balapitiya is a river-crossed, jungle-strewn, ocean-side escape.
  • Bentota


    Just a few hours' drive south of Colombo, Sri Lanka's west-coast town of Bentota is home to blissed-out beaches and lush tropical gardens.
  • Colombo


    Home to more than two million people, Sri Lanka’s capital is a riot of colour, colonial grandeur and a cosmopolitan dining scene.
  • Galle


    A jaw-dropping fortress crammed with colonial flashbacks is at the heart of cosmopolitan Galle, a fishing town of 100,000 people on Sri Lanka’s sultry south-west coast.
  • Hill Country

    Hill Country

    Sri Lanka's lush inland Hill Country is home to luxuriant, emerald peaks dotted with colourful sari-clad tea-pluckers and white louvered tea factories submerged in the greenery like Mississippi riverboats bobbing in a very high tide.
  • Kandy


    A former royal capital and home of famous festival the Perahera, inland Kandy is the beating heart of the Hill Country, set around a serene lake surrounded by some of Sri Lanka's most evocative temples.
  • Tangalle


    Secluded on Sri Lanka’s southernmost shores overlooking the Indian Ocean, beach-blessed Tangalle is the go-to place for laid-back, forget-about-everything lounging.
  • The Cultural Triangle

    The Cultural Triangle

    Dubbed the ‘Cultural Triangle’, this ancient region of Sri Lanka takes its name from the seven UNESCO World Heritage sites peppered throughout the region.
  • Trincomalee


    Trincomalee is the trouble-triumphing capital of Sri Lanka’s wild Eastern Province. The gateway to Uppuveli and Nilaveli beaches, it’s home to sacred trees, gilded temples and a historic natural harbour (praised by Nelson, Ptolemy and Marco Polo).
  • Wadduwa


    A coconut-plantation-patchwork and Ayurveda-espousing holiday spot on the southwest coast, little-known Wadduwa is a serious contender for best Sinhalese beach hub.
