Set amid the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has beguiled travellers for centuries with its striking natural beauty and over 2,000 years of culture.
Less than a third of the size of the UK, this tiny island packs a lot into its modest surface area, including no less than eight UNESCO World Heritage sites and one of the most diverse wildlife populations in Asia.
With patches of dense jungle, misty highlands swathed in incredibly green tea-plantations and expanses of wildlife-rich scrubland, the country’s landscape is refreshingly unspoilt, and you’re never more than a short drive from the palm-fringed coastline.
Glories of early Buddhist civilisation such as Anuradhapura, the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and Sigiriya Rock Fortress remain an important touchstone of national identity in a rich and fascinating culture with religion at its heart.

"We had a fantastic trip to Sri Lanka. Everyone enjoyed it and could not fault the holiday at all. Everything went according to plan – couldn’t have been better. All the hotels were excellent, the service faultless and the food superb. It is a very rare occasion when you can see a leopard in the wild (the guide and the driver were equally as excited as us!). I would like to commend our guide / driver (Bandu.) He went out of his way to do everything to make our time in Sri Lanka a great success and I would recommend his services to anyone in the future. All in all we had a wonderful time and are already contemplating our next holiday. Many thanks for all your help!" — Jarrit Family, Melbourne, January 2018
"Wish I was back there now! We loved our guide and had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka and would recommend Getaboutasia." — Mr and Mrs Eather, Sydney, December 2017
"Our driver was great and looked after us so much it was like having a parent to look after us. Everything was great and we were very glad to have had breakfast included too. To narrow down our top 3 favourites; well we absolutely loved the Spice Garden, Ella Rock and Horton Plains, (we got to pat a deer it was beautiful)Oh and our first two accommodation places we had upgrades! The most beautiful rooms!! Thanks again for all the organising and chopping and changing. We will recommend Getaboutasia Much appreciated." — Mrs Fiddler and Mr Bade, Melbourne , October 2017
"All Hotels were of a high standard with lovely rooms, pleasant and friendly staff and good facilities. Our Leader/Driver was magnificent. His knowledge of history, towns, culture, attractions and wildlife was excellent as was his driving! His friendliness and advice/recommendations was welcomed as was his punctuality and cleanliness of his vehicle. Many thanks for organising this trip." — Mick and Ross, Warrandyte, April 2017
"We felt that Sri Lanka was a great destination and a suitable destination of all types of people, although very hot and humid in coastal areas in April. We enjoyed it all, and the final days in Colombo were good as Ramada Hotel was very well located, and a special treat as New Year celebrations going on." — Mr and Mrs Clark, Bribie Island, April 2017
"Our trip was a success and we were very happy with our car and driver Manoje. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. I think we especially enjoyed the high areas and the lovely scenery amidst the tea plantations. The quality of our accommodations was appreciated and the service everywhere was great." — Alan & Angela Batt, Clovelly, March 2017

"Trip was fantastic! Everything went really well and our itinerary was perfect. We were met at the airport by our driver, Sunil Sanarakkody who was a terrific guide; couldn't have asked for a better one. I'm glad we added Yala and Mirissa, both were well worthwhile! Both safari parks were different and we saw many different animals and birdlife in both. Thank you for putting this all together for us, absolutely fabulous! " — Lisa and Des, Adelaide, December 2016
