Hope you’re doing good 🙂 Festivities are around the corner and I’m sure you are either busy preparing for the same or probably planning a vacation since there is a long weekend ahead.

I have been mostly planning my weekend scheduling blog posts that were not published due to the huge mishap that occurred with the server for our blog. A lot of posts got lined up because of this and it’s time I share that with you all 😀 Today, I’m sharing a list of places to visit when in Sri Lanka. Talking about vacation, Thomas Cook is currently running a #NoMoreFakecation contest where you have to ‘fake’ a vacation to stand a chance to win a free international trip. 🙂

Sri Lanka is a beautiful island and there are so many things to do that you should definitely plan prior so that you can decide the places you would want to go to and when. I am going to talk about the different places that you can visit if you are planning on booking a Sri Lanka tour package and don’t know what to visit –

Three MUST visit places are definitely Kandy, Bentota and Colombo. Obviously, there are more but I’m just listing these few important ones.

Kandy – This place is known for the UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Temple of Tooth Relic, which is one of the most sacred places of worship in the Buddhist World.  By ancient tradition, the one who was in possession of the Tooth Relic had claim to the throne.

Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery is another place you need to check out when you are in Bentota. This turtle hatchery and turtle watching project is set up by the Turtle Conservation Project in collaboration with the Wildlife Department of Sri Lanka.

Colombo – When you are here, you should not miss the Galle Face Green which is in the heart of the city along the Indian Ocean coast.


Another place to visit is the Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara – a Buddhist temple in Kelaniya, Sri Lanka, seven miles from Colombo.


Apart from the places I mentioned, there are many other places you could visit if you have the time. We all need a vacation once in awhile and what better way than to be prepared completely prior to your travel. Ensuring you book Sri Lanka Holiday packages also helps you narrow down the places you can visit!

I hope you liked this post as much as I loved compiling it. If I am missing out on any places, don’t forget to comment below and help others who are reading this!
