Today, this shop and restaurant-filled area is known as a commercial hub!

After a night in the city, you'll switch gears to soak up some village vibes. On your way to the ancient stone city of Sigiriya, make a visit to an elephant orphanage! Interact with Sri Lanka's cutest (and biggest) residents as they eat and bathe in the river. Upon arrival in Sigiriya, you'll explore the UNESCO Lions Rock of Sigiriya and the Cave Temple of Dambulla. 

As you journey from Sigiriya to the picturesque town of Kandy, you'll stop at a local spice and herb garden. Breathe in aromatic scents and consider snagging some flavorful souvenirs! Surrounded by mountains, rainforests, and tea plantations, the city of Kandy is nestled on the scenic Bogambara Lake. During your stay, you'll visit sacred Buddhist sites, such as the Temple of Tooth, and you'll also feast your eyes on cultural spectacles, such as a dance and drum show! 

After that, venture to Peradeniya, where you'll explore the Royal Botanical Gardens, filled with a vibrant mix of native, tropical, and exotic plants. Next, move on to Ramboda Falls, where you'll visit a local tea factory, and of course, sip a cup yourself! From there, enjoy stays in Nuwara Eliya and the beach paradise of Beruwala.

Last but certainly not least, hop a flight headed for paradise - the Maldives! Famous for its pristine beaches, turquoise waters, and serenity, this coral island archipelago is an oasis of peaceful relaxation and picture-perfect scenery. Lounge on warm white sand, stroll past swaying coconut palms, and watch unbelievable sunsets as you sip tropical cocktails and indulge in fresh seafood.
