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.

    Jackywilson's 5 days trip to Sri Lanka

    Travel Triangle is a trustworthy agency, through their partner in Sri Lanka. As the reception was ensured well so too the departure would have been arranged with a cab. The driver cum guide, Mr. Naveen, was excellent.

    Alivia's 3 days trip to Sri Lanka

    Thank you Travel Triangle for organising this trip. A big shout out to Relax Lanka Tours for planning this trip so well and giving us the best Sri Lankan experience. Special thanks to our guide Prem for being so cooperative and making our journey comfortable. He was familiar to all the places and catered to all our demands :). Thank you Peter from Relax Lanka Tours for giving us the best beach resort - Manara Beach Resort. The location was wonderful- just overlooking the gorgeous ocean! The hospitality especially the food at the resort was great too. Very very warm people! I would highly recommend this place. Beautiful and serene . We went to sleep to the sound of the ocean waves and that was surreal! A big thank you to all the people who made this trip possible and memorable for me.

    Mahesh

    Hyderabad

    Mahesh's 7 days trip to Sri Lanka

    Good tour, but could have been a lil cheaper, I think travel triangle need to reduce there commission, as I compared the rates at the hotel, Further I was not given the travel distance and time, but was not shared , which could have been more helpful for planning the travel daily Further srilanka has led opinion for pure veg food, so I think this need to be addressed in advance and stay need to be planned near such places Rest all good Eden resort good
