Things to Do in Sri Lanka

Known for breathtaking coastline, Sri Lanka boasts a bevy of activities and attractions to keep its visitors hooked. Among all the other things to do in Sri Lanka, shopping is that one activity that keeps everyone excited to the entirety of the trip! Here, you may shop variety of handicrafts, handloom fabrics, leather products, jewellery, and lots more for a bouquet of souvenirs. You may buy the precious gems in Ratnapura, shop for antique jewellery and silver belts in Kandy, whereas tea can be found in Nuwara Eliya.

Another list of exciting things to do in Sri Lanka at night like casinos, night cafes and bars can be enjoyed mostly in the big cities. Some of the famous spots are the Bally’s casino at Colombo, Sky Lounge, ‘Slightly Chilled Lounge Bar and Restaurant’ and Kandy, etc. A Cascade, in Colombo is a popular nightclub due to its ambience which is similar to any other Western country.  There are some amazing food joints to enjoy at night like the Seafood Cove, ON 14 Roof Top Bar and Lounge. The seafood is a must try in this country.

Head to the south west coast for the coral reefs, and enjoy water sports activities like snorkeling and diving. Planning a day trip to Mirissa Beach, Hikkaduwa Beach, or Bentota Beach for adventure tour and kite surfing at spectacular beaches is also one of the best things to do in Sri Lanka. For wildlife lovers, this country is the home to the Sri Lankan leopards, black bears, elephants, and many more. You can take the day safari tours to behold the wildlife beauties or take the boat ride to see the dolphins and blue whale.

For some adrenaline-pumping, you may also try the hot air ballooning. Enjoy an aerial view from the top under the blue sky is mesmerizing with small man-made lakes, greenery, monuments, etc. Extend your list of things to do in Sri Lanka is to take a cultural heritage tour and soak in the ancient history of Sri Lanka. Behold the ancient monument ruins, the Buddhist magnificent sculptures, the Golden Cave Temple which dates back to prior 2nd century.

Next thing to do in Sri Lanka is to go ‘caving’. This is a new and rather unusual experience as Sri Lanka has many caves spread across its land where you can explore and take photos. These caves are home to a variety of creatures, especially nocturnal in nature. If you have that kind of excitement to explore the historic cave, do go for it.

While visiting Sri Lanka, you can do so many activities and simultaneously enjoy the natural beauty and historic monuments altogether.

      Excellent & Very Beautiful Country....!! The wild @ Sigriya having excellent and adventurous location. Cinnamon Citadel @ Kandy provide us very memorable welcome. Whether at Kandy was really excellent and we enjoyed a lot. Okary Tea Bush @ Nuwara eliya hotel was good. It's too cold place. Nice view from window. @ Bentota we stayed at two resorts-pandanus beach and cinnamon bay. Both properties are excellent. Cinnamon is very big property with all amenities. @ colombo we stayed at Marino Beach. At sight very slow process of check in. Rooms were not ready. But after check in property is excellent with rooftop pool. Over and above all stars goes toTravel Ceylon who has arranged this trip for us. Sales personal Mr. Chatura is having excellent knowledge and skill and ability to customize package according to our requirement. All members of trip are highly satisfied with the way they provided service. Last but not least, Mr. Dilipa our guide has help us a lot for roaming around all places according to interney. Finally Driver was also excellent and ride us safely during entire Journey. 7star appraisal to Travel ceylon. Cold Whether at Nuwara Eliya and Boating experience was awesome. Would definitely visit srilanka again If I get chance. Inspite of Bad happened in April, entire country is moving ahead to uplifting country. Thanks to all Local to whom we interact.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      The trip was like a roller coaster ride some of our experience was great and some where worst or I can say say it was worst of worst. In Laluna Hotel I was given a driver room to stay and even after complaining about athe same they said they can't change the room. It took 4-5 hours for us to get the room in the hotel. Later the manager said the food would be complimentary from the hotel side however, in the morning on the breakfast table he asked us to pay for the same. The second instance that happens was the agent book hotel Thuruliya lodge in Ramboda which was approximately more than hour from the railway station from where we had to take a train for Ella. And also the train tickets were not booked on advance we had to travel in 2nd class without any seat. So for good 2hours we had to stand. Thirdly the hotel should be booked near the railway station so that our travel time could have been reduced. We had to wake up at 5am for the train journey and as the tickets were not booked we had to wait for more than 3hours. This kind of service is not acceptable when the things are planned well in advance. I mean why the hotel gave us a chauffeur room that is totally unacceptable. I am not going to book any hotel from travel triangle The best memories I had was the Wewa adara hotel that we stay in the first day and also our chauffeur was the best. He made the journey very pleasant for us and he always try to make the trip memorable for us. Thanks a lot Indika Aya you are the best

      Travel Triangle had connected us with many travel agents from their panel and we shortlisted Overa Tours, who were extremely professional and delivered to their commitment right from pick-up to the airport to all the bookings. We opted for all 5 star properties and the travel agent provided the best. We requested for bookings at other restaurants and the same was also done, which was out of turn. The driver was with us all the time and extremely courteous and helpful. Special thanks to Nipuni, Overa Tours for arranging for everything and contacting us all the time to find out if there were any complaints. We visited Numara Elya, Kandy, Bentota and Yalla. We were fortunate enough to sight 2 leopards, herd of elephant, crocodile and other animals at the Yalla National Park. The best property turned out to be Jetwing, Yalla besides The Golden Crown, Kandy and Langdale by Amaya at Nuwara Elya, Kandy. Sri Lanka is a safe country to visit and there is immense security all over. We urge everyone to visit Sri Lanka as it is a beautiful country and extremely good people. Thank you Overa Tours.
