Escape to Sri Lanka
Day 01Arrival / Bentota
Once you have arrived in our paradise island, we will pick you up at the Bandaranaike International Airport and we will take a tour of Bentota first. Bentota is a beach town in southern Sri Lanka with a population of 37,000 inhabitants. Bentota is primarily a tourist destination, having a small airport (Bentota River Airport) and a few world-class hotels. It is a popular watersports destination and is well-known for the manufacturing of toddy, an alcoholic beverage derived from coconut nectar. On Induruwa beach, there is also a turtle hatchery.
Day 02Bentota / Galle / Bentota
From Bentota, we will journey to Galle, along the coasts for you to catch the sights of many amazing beaches. Galle is a tourist hotspot and a sight to cherish for all of our lives. Smaller cities have an air about them that larger cities don't. Make a list of everything fun to do in Galle before you go so you may see as much as possible on your vacation. You'll quickly realize that bigger doesn't always imply better!
Day 03Bentota / Colombo
For the last leg of the trip, we will further explore Bentota and make our way to Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lanka. Colombo, with a population of 5,6 million inhabitants, is a large cosmopolitan metropolis that has transformed dramatically in the last several years. It is undergoing a construction boom that includes towering buildings, new roads, many expensive hotels, a massive TV tower that will also contain a hotel and a large retail mall, as well as a new harbor port.
For the last day, we have prepared for you to visit Bevis Bawa’s Brief Garden in Colombo, as well as further explore it. Put on some comfortable walking shoes or sandals and take a stroll around these two historic districts (Fort and Pettah), which are rich in history and have gorgeous colonial buildings and marketplaces. Take a tuk-tuk to the remainder of the landmarks, and finish your Colombo tour with a sunset viewing at Galle Face Green while eating some wonderful Sri Lankan rice and curry.
We hope you have enjoyed your brief trip to Sri Lanka. With a heart full of memories, we bid you adieu and hope that you will return in future.
