Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle & Beach

14 days from £3,950 per person

This itinerary is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Cultural Holidays.

This tour offers both an insightful view to Sri Lanka's history as well a relaxing beach holiday. Starting in the cultural triangle, visit the beautiful Dambulla Cave Temples, which are adorned with Buddha statues and cave paintings. Visit the ancient city ruins Polonnaruwa and climb the famous Sigiriya Rock where the old fort was built by King Kashyapa (AD 477 - 495), and later used as a Buddhist monastery until 14th century. Continue south into one of the old capitals of Sri Lanka, Kandy. Here visit the beautiful Peradeniya Botanical Gardens and explore the Temple of the Tooth where you can gain an insight to Sri Lanka's Buddhist history. 

For the final part of the tour, travel down to the south coast where you will have six wonderfully relaxing days spent on the beach overlooking the Indian Ocean.

This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your very own tailor-made tour of Sri Lanka. If you are feeling inspired and would like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Epic JourneysHoneymoons and Family Holidays, as well as our favourite Surfing and Beach itineraries.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
