Spices, Scenery, and Surf: A Sri Lankan Escape

Embark on a thrilling sensory odyssey through Sri Lanka's undulating hills to the sun-drenched shores, starting in the vibrant cultural epicentre of Kandy. Immerse yourself in the mesmerizing Temple of the Tooth, inhale the intoxicating scents of the botanical gardens, and master the nuances of Sri Lankan cuisine in a hands-on cooking class. Then, board the legendary train ride through the lush Tea Country to Ella, where charming chalets nestled amidst the verdant landscape beckon. Discover ancient temples, hidden trails, and breathtaking views around every turn. Surrender to the tranquil beauty of Malabar Hill, where the jungle envelops you, and serenity reigns. Then brace yourself for adventure at Kumu Beach, where you can savour iced Ceylon tea under the sway of palm trees or hit the surf for an adrenaline-fuelled ride.
