  • Day 1 : AIRPORT/COLOMBO

    Arrival & check in to the 5* Cinnamon Grand Hotel OR 5* Colombo Courtyard (Boutique Hotel Option)

    Normal check in time- 14h00

    Evening

    Enjoy a city tour of Colombo; the former administrative capital of Sri Lanka, and the country’s
    largest city. It is an eclectic mix of the bygone colonial era as well as having a stark modern
    contrast. The main reason Colombo is what it is today is thanks to the large harbour and
    situation facing India and being in a stop-off point for East-West trade. The British Empire in
    1815 made Colombo the capital of Sri Lanka and as such it’s home to the main entertainment,
    restaurants and corporate offices that you’d expect from a large city. The tour of Colombo lets
    you delve into the past and present of the city, looking at the commercial sites, religious areas
    and historical monuments. You will get to see Pettah and the bustling Fort as well as the Galle
    face Green, Cinnamon Gardens and the sublime Viharamahadevi Park.

    to admire the natural beauty that Sri Lanka has to offer, and as you pass Ahungalle you’ll head
    south towards Colombo where you will pass through the thick and fascinating mangroves. It’s
    a stunning attraction; being so close to nature and yet so calm and pleasant being on the slow
