Sri Lanka Family Holiday

Naturally gorgeous, culturally captivating and steeped in mysticism, Sri Lanka makes for a wonderful introduction to both travel and the Indian subcontinent. Discover temples carved from cliffs in Dambulla and fortresses built on boulders in Sigiriya. Cycle through peaceful scenes of village life and tour working tea plantations in the hill country around Bandarawela. Visit the country's most significant religious relic, the Temple of the Tooth, in Kandy and see where Sri Lanka's last royals sat in Polonnaruwa. Safari through Uda Walawe National Park in search of leopards and monkeys, see baby elephants up close at a rescue centre and chill out by the beach in Tangalle. Educational, active and leisurely paced, this trip is everything you could want in a family getaway.
