Day 1 : Arrive in Sri Lanka (Nuwara Eliya)
Upon your arrival in Colombo, you will be welcomed by our representative who will also arrange form your transfer to Nuwara Eliya (190km /5 hours). Check in to your hotel and after you could spend the rest of the day at leisure or go for a walk in this picturesque town. At the end of the day, return and spend the evening at leisure in the hotel.
Day 2 : Exploring Nuwara Eliya
After breakfast at the hotel, check out and leave for Nuwara Eliya (77km / 2hours). On the way, you will be treated to a multitude of tea plantations and waterfalls. The summer resort of Nuwara Eliya (nu-rel-iya, meaning ‘City of Light’) keeps its colonial hill station atmosphere more completely than any place in the subcontinent. The town centre is a concrete tangle but the outskirts still keep the atmosphere of a misplaced British village, with hedges, rose gardens and red-roofed bungalows sporting twee names. The old post office, the racecourse, the English country house–styled Hill Club with its hunting pictures, mounted fish and hunting trophies and the 18-hole golf course all somehow seem more British than Britain itself. The Victoria Park, in the middle of the town, is a lovely place for a stroll or a picnic and is also good to see some of the rare birds. Upon arrival, you are taken for a tour of the city and its environs. After the tour, return and stay overnight at the hotel.
Day 3 : Nuwara Eliya to Colombo
Post a filling breakfast at the hotel, check-out and proceed to Colombo. Check in to your hotel and after you could spend the rest of the day at leisure or go for a walk in this picturesque town. At the end of the day, return and spend the evening at leisure in the hotel.
Day 4 : Exploring Colombo
After breakfast at the hotel, proceed for a morning city tour of Colombo. The tour will take you to the busy commercial areas as well as the tree-lined residential, Cinnamon Gardens. One of the first stops on the route is the Fort. During the European era Fort was indeed a fort, surrounded by the sea on two sides and a moat on the landward sides. Today it’s a curious mix of brash modern structures, such as the World Trade Center, and venerable red-brick institutions from the Colonial-era, such as Cargills and Millers. You are also taken to visit Sea Street - the Goldsmiths quarters, where you will also find a Hindu temple with elaborate stone carvings. Nearby is the Wolvendaal Church, the most important Dutch building in Sri Lanka. When the church was built in 1749, this area was a wilderness beyond the city walls. The Europeans mistook the packs of roaming jackals for wolves, and the area became known as Wolf’s Dale, or Wolvendaal in Dutch. The historic Dewatagaha Mosque and the former Eye Hospital are two buildings in Cinnamon Gardens worth visiting. Also visit the BMICH (Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall), see the replica of Avukana Buddha and the Independence Square. Return and stay overnight at the hotel.
