Why we love it Design your trip Highlights FAQs

A winning romantic combination of culture and beach, travelling through Sri Lanka's Tea Country and ancient sights, before finishing up on the Maldives' paradise-like shores.


Why we love it

“For the couple that wants it all, from cultural wonders and white sandy shores to amazing hotels and plenty of tasty food along the way. For a small island, Sri Lanka has no shortage of things to do and on this trip, you’ll stroll through remote tea plantations, visit ancient Buddhist temples, and watch the elephants as they migrate across the North. In the Maldives, the pace is slow, and the beach is the star attraction. It’s great for diving and there are plenty of water sports on offer - but this is a time to just stop and take it all in. Preferably with a cold one. This trip is perfect for a honeymoon but let’s face it, it’s pretty much perfect for everybody, right? What’s not to love…”

Time to experience one of the most scenic train rides in Asia. You will be dropped at the train station to take the toy train through the winding tea country of Sri Lanka. At the other end, you will be collected and transferred to your next hotel.

Destination

05 Jun - 08 Jun

Tea Country & Ella

Home to Sri Lanka's most famous export - tea. The rolling tea fields are simply stunning and in our opinion, not to be missed. Best visited by a wonderful train ride that winds its way through the hills, it's a great place to spend two or three nights wandering the plantations and soaking up the area's beautiful scenery.
