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.

    Jeetu's 6 days trip to Sri Lanka

    I must accept the fact here that before proceeding on this trip I was a bit worried due to ongoing situation out there and what I have been seeing and reading in media but when I landed in there it was one of best holidays I have ever had. I should say that if anybody wants to visit Sri Lanka and t
    hey are sceptical about it due to ongoing situation there so they must be rest assured that tourism is not at all affected in there and all tourism activities are going on without any interruption. I found Sri Lanka as a place where people are so nice and generous and whatever the protests are going on are only against the government and are more or less peaceful. And for the people who are worrying about fuel and electricity so I must tell them that they should not be worrying about it since I noticed fuel is only an issue in Colombo and the more you go inside the country the problem is not that much, Evan I saw so many fuel stations in Nuwara Eliya and Yala with hardly any queues and whenever there is a power cut, the hotels are well equipped with backup generators with fuel. Now coming to my point to point experience. I must say that Mr. Prasanna is so professional and he arranged everything for us and we did not require to worry about anything. Also, special mention to our driver Mr. Bandara who is a gem of a person and is a very humble and polite guy. He was always on time and his driving skills are the best. Hotels in Colombo and Yala could have been better as both the hotels doesn't fit into the category of 4 or 5 star as per my understanding. Hotels in Kandy and Bentota were the best. Overall it was a fantastic experience visiting Sri Lanka and I would recommend every one to visit this beautiful country once in their lifetime. Thanks

    Ashok from Amara was of great help.. even with all the issues in the country he made sure everything was well arranged. The driver Rohit and guide pradeep were also very nice and well informed. Overall a great trip I will give zero ratings to Travel triangle.. they are horrible at responding.

    Sreejan Sur

    Bengaluru

    Sreejan's 6 days trip to Sri Lanka

    ***The Good Experience*** 1. Prasanna helped us plan the trip, he is a humble person, and always available to clear our queries. 2. The driver Shanuka was also good, can speak english well and was helpful. 3. All the hotels were good , however in the bentota hotel, we faced some power problem duri
    ng day time as they had limited diesel and wanted to use it at night for backup. 4. Even though there were large queues at petrol pump, since we were international tourists, we were given priority and did not had to wait much during refueling. Overall the trip well well except the below bad experience. ***The Bad Experience*** 1. Our 100 USD got stolen, and is most likely by the boat driver of Madhu Ganga Boat Safari at Mangrove Cave Hotel. We have strong reason to believe so, as he made us stop at buddha temple island even though it was not an official stop, asking us to keep the handbag in boat which we wanted to keep with us, then going back to boat with our slippers when we were in temple. He also had other foreign currencies like INR, when we asked the source, he didn't say anything. We realized this next day, otherwise we could have confronted. I would recommend to never take tourists to Mangrove Cave Hotel for boat safari, instead take them to some other operator. 2. We had difficulty in getting the remaining LKR exchanged at airport for USD, as given the crisis, limited exchanges were having USD and they were asking for receipt of USD to LKR exchange (which we didn't had). After many requests one exchange agreed to exchange our LKR for EUR. Would recommend tourists to always exchange from a authorized exchange and keep the receipt securely. ***Overall Experience*** I will still give SHA travels a 5 star rating as trip was largely well managed and hotels were good. I would like more tourists to visit Sri Lanka with a broader mind and help them revive their economy

The driver and cab provided were good. However at the fag end of the trip the driver was in a hurry to go home and did n
    ot encourage us to cover more places. May be because of the fuel crisis there

    Shalmoli's 9 days trip to Sri Lanka

    This indeed was a trip to remember! From the time we landed at the island country , every moment has been beautiful. Our 9 days itinerary covered Sigiriya, Kandy,NuwaraEliya, Yala, Bentota & Colombo. We were a bit sceptical to travel amidst the current economic crisis! But our trip was not hampere
    d at all. The places, hotels , the hospitality, the roads the activities and the food - everything will be cherished for long. Coming to our guide for the entire trip - Priyantha Sir - 10stars is not enough. A gem of a person, always with a smiling face , he ensured we have the best time ever! The entire our been made special by Chamodi. A lot of thanks to her. We took our parents in the trip - she ensured everything goes fine. It was a beautiful gesture on her part to enquire about us throughout the trip! If ever we travel to SriLanka we will ensure its with her The only thing negative about the trip is our last stay - Hotel Nelly Marine. Given the hospitality,food and view we got throughout the journey, this hotel was just not upto the mark. Neither the food options or the view of the hotel. SriLanka is beautiful, Active Srilanka made it more special for us. Once again thanks to Priyantha Sir, Chamodi for the experience. Thanks to TravelTriangle for connecting us with Active Srilanka!
