Best for: Slow Travel, Culture & Beach
You might have been to Sri Lanka before, and loved the country. This itinerary is perfect for a hugely relaxing journey along the south coast, spending longer in each destination so you have lots of time to truly enjoy the amazing hotels you are staying in, and being able to properly experience the destination without the need to move on too quickly. The south coast of Sri Lanka is one of those places that just makes you so relaxed, a winter-sun bolthole that has a fantastic climate with a culture and cuisine that simply makes you smile. Stay in gorgeous boutique hotels, chosen to be a relaxing base where you might well spend a day or two just sitting by the pool reading a book and recharging the batteries. You can of course put down the book from time to time and dip into the destination such as taking a jeep out in Yala National Park to spot leopard and elephant, or walking through the fascinating colonial town of Galle. You can do as much or as little as you want, as this itinerary is all about flexibility. Sometimes a holiday should very much be a holiday. Sit back and let the leisurely delights of Sri Lanka restore you to your former self!
