Sri Lanka - Short & Sweet

Day 01 : Arrival - Colombo
After your arrival in the Sri Lankan commercial capital Columbo you would be assisted by our representatives and escorted to your hotel. You hotel would be located in the heart of Columbo. It would be a centre of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of the city by the side of the Indian Ocean. The Galle Face, hailed as a masterpiece of Victorian architecture, retains the dignified and polite atmosphere that gave it such fame in the colonial age. Sympathetic renovations and refurbishments are helping to protect its historic status in more demanding times. The Sea spray restaurant, specialising in fish, is blessed by an ocean frontage. Few places are better to watch a Colombo sunset.

Day 02 : Colombo
After you are done through your breakfast you would be taken on a sightseeing tour of Colombo. We drive through the commercial and city centre area known as the "Fort", built by the Portuguese in the 16th century. A highlight would be a visit to the bustling and colourful markets and bazaars of Pettah; the National Museum with its fine collection of lovely antiques and art of Sri Lanka. Drive past town hall, Independence square, the B.M.I.C.H (International Convention Centre) and Cinnamon gardens residential area. We also visit the Zoological gardens at Dehiwala. While journeying to your hotel you can visit a Buddhist and a Hindu Temple.

You may pass your evening sauntering along Galle Face. This is the sea front of Colombo where scores of middle class Sri Lankans arrive for a small picnic. They either bring their own food or could make inexpensive buys from the several inexpensive food stalls that dot the walkway along the shore. Little family's huddle in small groups, children fly kites or play soft football. The several inflatable toys add colour and atmosphere to the place. Relax yourself in the lovely sea breeze.
Day 03 : Colombo - Pinnawela - Kandy
We would the third day for touring Kandy. Enroute we visit Pinnawela, an interesting and amusing elephant orphanage. Pinnawela is the home to some 60 or more elephant orphans. A place you will really enjoy and never forget. Most orphans are accustomed to their curious human visitors are harmless. Sri Lanka is the only country in the world to open elephant orphanages to protect the destitute young wild elephants. Young elephants left in the jungle without care are brought to this orphanage and tendered till they reach maturity. Interesting time to visit the orphanage is at feeding time to see the babies being bottle-fed or at the bathing time when the herd is brought to a river,

Sri Lanka - Short & Sweet You would be taken to Spice garden. The air is filled with the incredible aroma of a variety of spices. You would have an opportunity to witness not only spice farming undertaken by traditional tools and implements, but, would have an opportunity to buy garden fresh spices at good prices. There are also massage oils available for body and joint pains. Check out the efficiency of the oil by asking for a massage.

Move on for a guided tour of Kandy. The Hill Capital of Kandy was the last bastion of the Sinhala kings and is a charming city offering a living record of a magnificent past. Center of attraction in Kandy is the Dalada Maligawa, the temple housing the sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha. Kandy Lake enhances the charm of the City. Kandy is a romantic city any time of the year. We also visit to the Market Place, an arts & crafts show room. Following this, we drive along the Upper lake road to get a panoramic view of the Kandy Lake and its environs. We continue driving to Peradeniya and visit the Botanical Gardens.

Enjoy famous Kandyan dance at an auditorium. The spectacular display of a wide range of dances is spell bounding. The colour, the vigour and the grace are amazing. Several martial dances too are performed. The highlight of course is the fire dance where dancers swallow fire, walk on fire and rub fire sticks on their body. Pass the night at a hotel.

Day 04 : Colombo - Departure
The day is your departure day. However before you depart you can spend a bit of time in shopping.
