Sri Lanka has been added to the worldwide destinations offered by UK tour operator Diverse Travel.
This lush tropical paradise was famously described by Marco Polo as ‘undoubtedly the finest island of its size in the world’. Lying in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is just a short plane transfer to the Maldives, so the chance to combine Sri Lankan culture with Maldivian diving is easy to organise with the knowledge of the Diverse Travel team.
“You can explore ancient cities, jungles, hill stations and miles of palm-fringed sandy beaches. It’s inexpensive when you’re there and the people are incredibly hospitable,” explains Jim Yanny, Managing Director of Diverse Travel.
Sri Lanka can also be booked as a stand-alone destination with personalised tailor-made holidays and itineraries. Sample tours include Archaeological and Cultural Tour, and Wildlife and Nature Tour.
Prices start at just £620 per person for a four-night itinerary, including shared accommodation in a four-star hotel, breakfast and dinner, all transfers, private air-conditioned car with English-speaking tour guide, all tours, jeep hire, National Park and temple entrance fees.
Sri Lankan Airlines and Emirates offer flights to Male from an extra £75 pp.
