​But first, safety

​To travel to Sri Lanka, Indian tourists must be fully vaccinated and must carry a negative Covid-19 (RT-PCR) test report conducted 72 hours prior to arrival and an on-arrival RT-PCR test at a certified hotel.


​Begin your road trip with Colombo. A rich colonial heritage and a modern present replete with fine dining options, shopping malls, and street markets are sure to make your stay memorable.

​Colombo to Kandy

​A three-and-a-half-hour drive from Colombo to Kandy promises mesmerising vistas, memorable moments, and lip-smacking food.

​Kandy to Galle

​Be prepared for a long leg of travel with a few picturesque halts from Kandy to Galle and stop at the Embilmeegama Tea Factory on the outskirts of Kandy.


​Off-beat and non-commercial, Ahangama is a quaint coastal town located 27 km to the east of Galle. If you aren’t feeling adventurous enough for surfing, there are other sailing activities that will catch your fancy.


​Unawatuna calls for a dedicated halt to soak in the sheer beauty. Enjoy the unending expanse of the Indian Ocean lined by swaying coconut trees.

​Galle Fort

​A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Galle Fort, was built by the Portuguese in 1588, then fortified by the Dutch from 1649. Go for a stroll along the fort, its thick ramparts, and the churches.

​Back to Colombo

​If you are still not done with shopping and eating, visit the Dutch Hospital area that gets buzzing in the evenings, particularly over the weekends.
