Sri Lanka: Ancient Civilisation
Endless beaches, timeless ruins, welcoming people, oodles of elephants, rolling surf, cheap prices, fun trains, famous tea and flavorful food make Sri Lanka irresistible. Sri Lanka’s 2000-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites where legendary temples boast beautiful details even as they shelter in caves or perch on prominent peaks. The charming island nation of Sri Lanka is located in the Indian Ocean, southeast of the Arabian Sea. Blessed with a rich history of over 3,000 years, it is one of the most important Buddhist centres in the world. Rising above its conflicted past, the country has emerged stronger and is in the midst of a huge wave of development. Connecting its villages with urban towns, the country offers travellers an intriguing mix of natural beauty, culture and spirituality.

Arrival at Colombo and transfer to Nuwara Eliya
Upon arrival and going through the immigration process we’ll drive to our very first destination of this country, Nuwara Eliya. Often referred to as ‘Little England’, this genteel highland community does have a rose-tinted, vaguely British-country-village feel to it, with its colonial-era bungalows, Tudor-style hotels, well-tended hedgerows and pretty gardens. Indeed, Nuwara Eliya is one of the most favoured cool-climate escapes for you. Check-in at your hotel here and relax for a while before heading out to the most iconic place to spend the evening here, Gregory Lake.
Hike to World’s End and walk endlessly through the gorgeous tea plantation
After getting up early in the morning and having our breakfast we’ll start a hike to the world’s end. The Horton Plains plateau comes to a sudden end at World’s End, a stunning escarpment that plunges 880m. The 9.5km round trip takes a leisurely three hours and the view from World’s End is unencumbered. After that, we’ll walk the most famous tea plantation and can also visit the tea factory for a tea-tasting session.
Nuwara Eliya to Mirissa via Ella
After waking up to the beautiful view and having our breakfast we’ll drive along the most scenic roads in Sri Lanka. We’ll visit Ella and take photos in front of the most iconic 9-arches bridge before reaching our destination for today, Mirissa. Fringing two sandy bays separated by a rock island reachable at low tide, Mirissa feels hidden away compared to Sri Lanka’s other busier resort towns. Mirissa’s beach and nightlife make it a popular tourist destination. Throw your bags as soon as we reach our hotel and head directly to the beach to crack open a coconut, slip into a hammock and rock gently in the breeze, and allow the hours, slip calmly by.
Whale watching at Mirissa and Party in the evening
Today we’ll spend a day watching the peaceful, gorgeous and totally harmless giants, Whale from a boat ride near Mirissa. Later in the evening, we’ll party on the beach or in our hotel where we’ll be staying.

From there we’ll drive to our next destination today Unawatuna Beach and then finally rest at Hikkaduwa for the day. We’ll enjoy snorkelling here at Hikkaduwa Beach.
