Sri Lanka 10 days itinerary
Sri Lanka is such a beautiful and colourful country so if you want to see the whole country you need at least 30 days.
We had only 10 days to explore the country and we didn’t want to move with the luggage every day to a different hotel, that's why we decided for two main locations:
Kandy & Unawatuna
We arrived to the Negombo airport at 1am so all we wanted to do after long 13h flight was to lay down in a bed. That’s why we rent a room near the airport and continue with the trip the next (the same) day
After 4 hours sleep (jet lag) we met our driver at the hotel and we went to our hotel in Kandy.
On the way there we stopped to see and ride the elephants. It was amazing. Such a wonderful creature. Next stop was at the spice garden. Then we went to our hotel for the next 4 nights: Theva Residency.
We woke up at 7am, ate our breakfast and went to Sigiriya rock. After that we visited Dambulla cave temple.
We went to a Kandy city centre that day: Royal Botanical Gardens and later the most sacred Budda temple: Temple of the sacred tooth. We had such a nice hotel with beautiful infinity pool, that’s why we spent the afternoon there.
On the fifth day we went to the tea factory where we also had tea tasting. Later we went to hardwood workshop, where they make everything by hand, and after that to a gemstone museum in Kandy and to the rainforest.
In the afternoon we went to traditional SriLankan dance show.
Kandy to Dalawella
It was almost 4 hours drive that’s why we just checked in at the hotel and went to the beach.
We enjoyed our day at Unawatuna beach and later we went to Turtle rescue centre. We released 1 day old baby turtles into the sea. That was the highlight of the day.
We went to Mirissa. At first we visited Coconut tree island, then the Mirissa Beach and before we returned to our hotel, we went to Parrot island.
At first we were at Wijaya beach, we took a swing from the coconut tree and then we went to the Jungle beach. That's the beach accesable only trough jungle.
That was our last day in Sri Lanka. We went shopping for Souvenirs in Galle and then visited Galle Lighthouse.
Later we went to the beach and enjoyed our last day in this beautiful country.
