This wonderful journey has been designed for first time visitors that are a little short on time as it packs a lot in to just 11 days. From Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital, the trip heads straight to Kandy, a historic city in the hills that is home to the Temple of the Tooth. In continues south, via train, into the tea plantations. The hill country is one of the most spectacular landscapes in Sri Lanka, and enjoying the views from the train is an absolute delight. After enjoying walks and colonial accommodation in the hills the journey continues south to Uda Walawe National Park, a wild area home to a plethora of birds as well as wild elephants that can be tracked in a jeep. From Uda Walawe it’s a relatively easy journey south to Galle, a delightful fortified town that is filled with crumbling colonial villas, boutique hotels and tiny gift shops. The trip ends in Bentota, a beautiful beach location on the west coast, the last stop before a flight back to the UK.
