Our Sri Lanka Travel Blogs

Over the years the Original Travel team has been to Sri Lanka many times. We pride ourselves on our unparalleled knowledge of the destinations we send our clients to and no Original Travel trip is complete without a blog to go with it. Take a look at what our very own Original Travellers have to say about Sri Lanka in our travel blogs:

Our Coolest Combos for 2017

Dynamic duos: think gin and tonic, French and Saunders, pineapple and pizza… okay, maybe not that last one, but the fact remains that some things are just better together - greater than the sum of their parts and thus elevated to legendary status (definitely not that last one, then). The same principles apply to travel - some destination double acts just work. With that in mind, we got to thinking (always dangerous) about our ultimate cool combos list, the jeans and white t-shirt of the holiday world, if you will. With our own cool combination of insider intel on the latest flight routes and knowledge of where's hot right now (in both senses of the word), we present the following perfect pairings...

Variety is the Spice of Life

Sri Lanka has long been a favourite destination of ours here at Original Travel. It's a country that really does have it all; culture, stunning scenery, wildlife, beaches, boutique hotels, sumptuous food and perfect weather. I've just returned from my fifth trip (it's a hard life) and each time I fall more in love with it. The beauty of moving around and making the trip into a fabulous journey, makes you feel that you have been away for much longer… result!

Family Holidays in Sri Lanka

Searching for somewhere special to spend the school holidays? Look no further than Sri Lanka - the idyllic gem of the Indian Ocean. Small in size but rich in culture, this little island boasts everything from tea estates and coconut plantations to white sandy beaches and colonial forts. Sri Lanka is not necessarily the go-to family destination but children can experience vibrant local festivals, bustling street markets and observe animals in their natural habitats - it is safe to say there is no lesson quite like it. The country's complex climate sometimes puts travellers off, but if you play your cards right, you can dodge the wet weather and enjoy beach spots year round. Avoid the monsoons by travelling to the east coast in the summer months, the south and west during the Christmas holidays, and when Easter comes around, the whole country's your oyster. With a plethora of family friendly hotels and exciting activities on offer, read on to discover some of our top picks.

Fourteen destinations for 2014

14 for '14? Sounds like a set of Mitchell Johnson's bowling figures from the recent Ashes debacle (one for the chaps there) but on this occasion referring to our predictions for the 14 destinations that are going to be big news in 2014.

The Magic of Sri Lanka

My brother lives in Singapore, and I was lucky enough to combine a recent visit with a unique holiday to Sri Lanka - a country I have been longing to visit ever since I was a child, growing up fascinated by stories my grandmother told me of living in what was once Ceylon - a country seeped in Kipling-esque romance and mystery; pet mongeese fighting off snakes in the garden, tea plantations, elephant polo, wild jungle teaming with leopards.

80 Senses: #11 - Sigiriya, Sri Lanka

A plateau palace carved into the rock... Rulers have long built imposing palaces to intimidate their subjects and terrify their enemies (two not always mutually exclusive parties), but few can have achieved the desired effect to the extent of Sigiriya in Sri Lanka.

Following on from part 2, here is the final instalment of our 3 part blog series about Tom's Sri Lanka tour...

New Destinations: Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now?

Those famous philosophers The Clash inadvertently put a modern moral dilemma in a punk nutshell - should we really travel to countries ruled by dubious regimes? Well, in some cases the answer is a categoric and resounding no (who'd want to go to France, anyway?), but for most of these destinations the situation is a little less black and white. Consider the following new destinations you could experience.

Thank you so much once again - an amazing holiday and you took all the worry and stress out of it!
