10 NIGHTS – FROM £1240 PER PERSON
If you want to visit Sri Lanka in May, June, July or September you are more restricted by the weather than at other times of year. Luckily however while the rain falls on the west coast, the less visited east coast experiences blue skies and calm seas. You can combine a beach stay here with a few days in the Cultural Triangle, which is located in one of Sri Lanka’s dry zones and a tea plantation bungalow in the hills where it rains all year anyway.
