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.

    Authentic Traveler Reviews for Sri Lanka

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    View All
    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      SriLanka in general is a nice place with enough natural resource, water falls, fruits with humble people . Roads were all maintained very well, mostly people follow traffic sincerely. Our driver Manju was very particular about time and he was at pickup point daily and also had multiple plans arranged for the full day. If some of the attractions are not available then he had other plans to fill our day to best utilize the day. He was explaining multiple attractions on our way and tried his best to answer all of our queries. This is one of the benefit of having an experienced English speaking driver during the trip. I asked to skip tooth relic temple as I believe temples should not have entry fees, if so then it will not be a temple instead will become an entertainment center. We had visited multiple places on our way, many of them had entrance fees like Botanical Garden, Pinnawala Elephant Camp, Turtle Hatchery. Entry fees are made same for both Indians and also any other foreigners, so I felt the price was little high. Gem stone Mining, Moon stone mining, Tea Factory, Mask Factory, Herbal Farm, Batik Factory were all had free entry and the information they provide were very useful information, at the end of the trip they will take you to their sales shop and create an environment where you will mostly end up buying something, which is worth as you had free entry and also free information session. Some corrections which I would focus next time >> ---------------------------------------------------------------- I was interested to go to some shopping place where I could find many souvenir items, but could not get useful details from driver or throughout the trip. I believe I should have visited Laksala to get these. Trip from Nuwara Eliya to Bentota was very long, we could have added one another place in middle to relax. I liked Galle city very much, so should have stayed somewhere nearby. Colombo bazaar trip was not much useful as this is something like a busy street in India as well. Driver dropped us in some fancy restaurants but I guess we could have gone to an only Indian restaurant present in Galle for lunch instead. Sigiriya, Yala seems a nice place so would like to cover next time. Ritigala & Rumaskala has sanjeevi mountain itseems. Some of the hotels were just sufficient and not very luxury Overall enjoyed my trip in Srilanka and liked cleanliness, nature. Would like to visit once again.

      Good trip planning. Very helpful driver and coordinator. Last night stay could have been a better place (with 3 sharing) One issue not with DH/TT but Hotels have a tendency of refilling toileteries bottle which needs to be monitored When we parted off at BIA with our drivrr Chandan we really felt sad.It proves the cordiality

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      This was our first international tour. Traveldek Executive Mr.Fiyaz assisted us very good in respect to every need from the first day of contact till few days before the journey. Due to his personal reasons even if the cab details and Driver number was forwarded to me 1hr before my departure from my country. The cab was nice and the driver was helpful. As the driver was unaware of the details of the tour contract,the problem started from the second morning. However, the driver make it up quickly. We were not even greeted with water bottle at our arrival at Colombo. Not even a single person keep contact with us as we proceeded. The hotels are good and they were really good in services also. Food from the hotels were very tasty,healthy and fresh. They were safe and secure for foreigners. We could come to know about Srilanka in hands with Traveldek in a good manner. The service grade might have to improve. The agents must be in touch with the clients atleast when it is asked so. Hope they should flourish in this service sector with more professional attitude. Should provide a good guide who really eager to share information and really knowledgeable. The hotel Skandig, Trincomalee,Amaya lake.
