Tours in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, is consistently voted as one of the top travel destinations in the world, for its beauty and history, its wealth of sacred sites, and the warmth of its people. For such a tiny country -- the little teardrop hanging from the tip of India -- the abundance of places to see is bewildering -- soaring mountains, ancient cities, historic temples, exotic wildlife -- so how do you decide where to stay? The best answer is to take a tour, so you can take in as much as possible.
Most Sri Lanka tours will take in the Golden Triangle, which includes the amazing Cave Temples of Dambulla, the jaw-dropping Rock Fortress of Sigiriya, one of the country's most extraordinary sights, and the gigantic stupas of the two ancient capitals, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura. You might find yourself exploring misty tea plantations, enjoying a safari among the big game of Yala National Park, taking a spectacular train ride over the mountains, or touring the beautiful ancient city of Kandy. Many tours allow some time at the end to relax on one of the Sri Lanka's fabulous beaches.
