Day 2 : After breakfast proceed to Nuwara Eliya while visiting a tea plantation and factory en-route. Nuwara Eliya is also the heart of Sri Lanka's tea country - rolling mountains carpeted by velvety green tea plantations, interspersed with gushing streams and tumbling waterfalls - producing 50% of some of the world's best tea.
Sri Lanka's highest mountain Pidurutalagala (8282 ft) is also located here. Nuwara Eliya is also known as "Little England". The cellubrious climate, misty glens and similar to the British climate, made it attractive to many British Settlers during the colonial times. It is certainly a place to be included in your travel itinerary.
Dinner and overnight the THE ROCK* in Nuwara Eliya* 3***
Day 3 : After breakfast you will be leaving for Hikkaduwa on Sri Lanka's South Coast. If you are adventurous, you have the option to go for a bit of white water rafting on the way (optional). Spend an adrenalin-filled morning racing along the Kelani River on its grade 3 rapids to take in the beautiful surroundings of the hill-country at high-speed! Or go straight for the Hikkaduwa Beach, famous for it's surfing and coloured beach life.
Dinner and overnight at the CITRUS in Hikkaduwa 4****
Day 4 : After breakfast you will be leaving for historical Galle, a bustling provincial capital and administrative centre for the South. Once a port, Galle was Sri Lanka’s first international commerce and trade centre, and these days the streets are still awash with a cosmopolitan range of goods available to buy in exotic markets and quirky art galleries. The Dutch presence is still visible in Galle, and should you want to retrace the footsteps of the Dutch rule, let our guide give you the tour of the Old Dutch fort (a UNESCO World Heritage site), the Dutch Government House, the former New Oriental Hotel (built in 1684), the old bell tower, and the Dutch tide-based sewage system. If you fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, however, you can make your way down to Galle’s beautiful Unawatuna Bay, one of Sri Lanka’s finest beaches, where the crystal-clear sea laps the white sand, and wilting palm trees frame the picturesque coastline. On your way back to the hotel it is time to get up-close and personal with some of Sri Lanka’s most adorable sea creatures at a turtle farm.
Dinner and overnight at the CITRUS* in Hikkaduwa 4****
Day 5 : After breakfast you will be leaving for Colombo along the South-West Coast, passing the beach resort of Bentota and the temples of Kalutara. The city tour of Colombo includes a visit to the old Parliament, the colonial Colombo Fort area and optional shopping at some of Sri Lanka's biggest malls - the Majestic City shopping complex and ODEL's Super Boutique.
In the evening transfer to the airport or your hotel (optional)
