Day 1: Arrival in Kandy
The excited Sri Lanka cultural tour commences today as soon as your flight lands at Colombo Airport. Our driver guide will wait for you at the exit of the airport in advance according to your flight schedule, and drive you to Kandy to check in at the hotel we have booked for you. After a short break, let's set out for a visit to the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, where you have chance to watch the elephants walking, playing and baby elephants being fed with milk. One of the most interesting scenes is to see a herd of elephant making their way to a river nearby for bathing. Next, a Traditional Cultural Dance Show is followed. Then we head to the Temple of the Tooth to appreciate this holy heritage site and gain some basic knowledge about the Buddhist culture and religion of the country.

Meals: Lunch

Accommodation: Ozo Kandy (4 stars)

Day 2: Kandy - Sigiriya
This morning, we are scheduled to visit the Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya. The beautiful environment and the stunning view inside the park make it a very nice place to take a leisurely walk. After that, go on with our travel to Dambulla and have a stopover at a Hindu temple in Matale. Then we will transfer to visit the Dambulla Cave Temple before arriving at Sigiriya. Claimed to be one of the greatest grottoes in Asia, Dambulla Cave Temple is definitely a must to tourists, especially for those who are interested in the ancient Buddhist wall paintings and statues. In addition, it also offers a nice view of the nearby green mountains and forests from the temple.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Accommodation: Amaara Forest Hotel (4 stars)

Day 3: Sigiriya - Polonnaruwa - Sigiriya
To avoid the heat and the big crowds, we start today's sightseeing early morning with a visit to the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. The whole palace was built on a huge rock at a height of 200 meters but nowadays only remains are well maintained. It is challengeable to climb the rock, but the breathtaking sceneries from the top make every step worthwhile. Drive to Polonnaruwa afterwards. The ruins of Polonnaruwa spread on a very large scale, which is quite impressive. You will spend the whole afternoon exploring this historical site to learn and understand the brilliant culture of old Sri Lanka. Getting around the city by bike or Tuk-tuk is helpful to cover as much ruins as possible in a short period of time. The bike rental service can be found at the main entrance of the site. After the whole day tour, we will transfer you back to the hotel in Sigiriya.
