Looking for 3 nights 4 days Sri Lanka package? The sunny tropical island for 4 days and wondering what exactly you can do and see to ensure you get the best of the nation? Here’s a quick guide on how you make the most of your holiday to Sri Lanka in 3 nights and 4 days.
History, beauty and modernity, all wrapped in one. The old town of Galle is a picturesque city trapped in a bubble of well-preserved ancient charms from the colonial era with a handful of chic modernisation. Stroll through the cobblestone ramparts of the Galle Fort and you’ll come across two striking monuments, both located on either end of the fort, that also simultaneously serve as great landmarks; the Galle Lighthouse and Galle Clock tower. The lighthouse is a sheer white structure, watching over the eager fishermen who set sail and make their way back home at dawn. It was built to ward fishermen and the colonial armies away from the nearby reefs. On the far end, you’ll find the Galle clocktower, built by a grateful patient in dedication to a doctor. Within the ramparts, you’ll find restaurants, retail outlets, museums and plenty of historic buildings that are great for exploring. A day in Galle will give you a number of things to do and see.
For your second day on the island, head over to the mountains of Sri Lanka and enjoy the colder weather as you stroll through the UNESCO World Heritage Site; the sacred city of Kandy. The first thing to do, is admire the beauty and grandeur of the Sri Dalada Maligawa. Pristine white, decorated with a gold tip on the stupa, the temple is the holiest on the island as it is believed to hold a sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha. The tooth relic is now preserved in a golden casket, and is paraded on the streets of Sri Lanka once a year in a grand festival known as the Esala Kandy Perahera. Next, head to the secret royal gardens located above the Kandy temple and palace, known as Udawatte kele; a forest sanctuary that was once used by the royals. Those interested in the colours and scents of nature will find that a stroll through the Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya is the perfect option for a stroll in the evening.
