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.

      TT has given me a memorable trip. That was awesome experience. Agents should be even more friendly. I was following up for an information. If that info was given by travel agent without me following up several times, it would have been even more good. People at Sri Lanka we're charging us more for everything. TT should include entry fee for all Itinerary. Beach view room given by hotel.

      the hotel was amazingily bad. In Galle the washroom was small and without air ventilation and no Wifi. In kandy the hotel was with no phone and the wasroom had a big window that is also without curtain. In colombo the wierdest hotel,it stinks and everywhere cockroaches ,washeoom with black damps.ughhhhh I dont know why this type of agents in travel triangle registered. the driver Mr.Amile only he is the person for whom we enjoyed a lot during sightseeing and his car is much better to stay in than hotel rooms.

      It was a way too good trip to Srilanka I would like to thank Arzoo from Travel Triangle , Nishaant from Amar Lanka Tours and Specially our cheuffer Wiston without whom the trip would not be so great. The cab was superb and he showed us all major places and guides also with its history. I would request all that dont think and go for Amara Lanka. Best part is the Unesco Heritage Sigiriya trek and Nuwar eliya view

      We had a great trip to Srilanka baring unexpected rain on Thrid day in Nuwara Eliya. Special mention to Chauffeur Mr. Dankan who was polite, helpful and extremely supportive during this trip. I will give one additional point to Boomlanka to have Ms.rashmi as one of their key member. All hotel stay were good, especially out stay at Ypsylon resort Beruwala provides wifi only in the lobby not in the room. . The only feedback I have for Boomlanka & Travel Triangle is while doing the planning, the entry fees & other exclusions for sightseeing which are mentioned under exclusion, they should provide a rough estimate (if not in detail) of how much it will cost us more after paying for the planned trip and when customer asked something which was not sure, i would request boomlanka team to provide better suggestion to make the trip more fruitfull . This will help us to plan in better way on monetary basis. Anyway, overall trip was good and will plan again to visit Srilanka to explore the places which we missed during this trip. And a big thanks to Ms.Divya seth from travel traingle team for making this trip happen, she has been very supportive and fast in response for every request.
