Land in Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. A private transfer will pick you up at the airport and deliver you to your chosen hotel.
Your three-night tour starts today. Pinnawela Elephant Sanctuary is one of your first stops (your arrival is timed for the elephants’ bath time), followed by a night in the UNESCO-listed city of Kandy. This central city sits on a rock plateau surrounded by green forest and tea plantations.
You’ll get to see those plantations up close the next day, when you wind your way to nearby Nuwara Eliya. Tour the factory and have a tea tasting here.After a night among the pinstriped tea hills, your driver will take you back towards the coast, before heading on to the airport to catch a flight to the next destination – the Maldives
The Maldives is the ideal do-nothing location. You can spend time settling in to your waterside villa or suite room, tucking in to seafood and cocktails on the beach, relaxing with an aromatherapy massage, or crashing out on a lounger on the sugar-white beach.
Fancy picking up the pace a little? The Maldives sprinkles over 1,000 islands, coral reefs and deep-sea caves across the Indian Ocean, so it’s a honeypot for scuba divers and snorkellers.
It’s time to wave adieu to the Maldives on day 13, when a boat or seaplane will deliver you back to the airport in Malé.
