5.0 stars

sri lanka + dubai

Searching for a completely novel holiday, filled with enthralling new experiences? Why not try a fascinating tour of Sri Lanka, followed by a stay in the midst of Dubai’s extravaganza. Start your holiday with a tour of Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka was ruled by kings for over two thousand years, a time when Buddhism flourished and became the island's dominant religion. In the beginning of the 16th century parts of Sri Lanka were conquered by the Portuguese and Dutch, before it became a British colony. Sri Lanka eventually gained independent after peaceful negotiations with the British in 1948. The many different rulers and influences have created a rich cultural tapestry - yours to discover on the Sri Lanka Kaleidoscope Tour. You will visit historic and beautiful cities of Habarana, Polonnaruwa and Sirigiya, the vibrant and exotic city of Kandy, the scenic hills of Nuwara Eliya and end up at the tranquil and relaxing beach destination of Beruwela. Along your way, you will visit temples and historic palaces, as well as spice gardens, farms, arts and craft markets and tea plantations. Also included is a Catamaran trip on the scenic Habarana lake, an elephant back safari, as well as a workshop on making incense sticks. Perhaps also try Ayuverda Therapy and relish Sri Lanken culture, enabling you to fully forget the stresses and worries of your everyday life. What makes this tour even more special, is that the tour encompasses stays at the 4* Cinnamon Lodge, The Cinnamon Citadel, and The Cinnamon Bey hotels, or similar, ensuring a luxurious and comfortable experience. What’s more, our on-the-ground expert guides will greet you off your flight and will always be on hand to give you a rich Sri Lankan experience, ensuring your trip is smooth, intriguing and authentic. But an enchanting, tropical tour, showcasing culture, history and charm, is not all that this holiday package provides. Head to Dubai for a glamorous finale to your exotic holiday. Stay at the 5* Rixos The Palm. Whilst infamous for its sleek, cutting edge modernity, the hotel is not devoid of Arabian charm. Relax and unwind on a glorious golden beach, or upon the landscaped pool sides, then take a bite to eat at one of the hotel’s 9 restaurants or lounges and enjoy a wide array of live entertainment. Feast one’s eyes with panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf, Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and the glittering skyline of the Dubai Marina. Take a Complimentary water taxi shuttle to Dubai’s vibrant Marina or take part in excursions. Perhaps visit the Mall of The Emirates Ski Centre, take a desert safari or a Dubai balloon tour and create memories that will last a lifetime. This Package really does provide a unique adventure, full of novel and intriguing experiences that will always be remembered fondly. Don’t miss out!
