    Golden Temple of Dambulla

    4.5
    12 reviews

    I went to golden temple of Dambulla a long time ago as a child and regarded it as a total bore. I climbed up the hill (it gets very hot in the summer) and once you get into the entrance of the temple you have to take your flip-flops off (you will learn to run towards the shade). Inside you ...

    Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications

    5
    6 reviews

    There's something of a cultural renaissance going on within the walls of Galle Fort. I still don't know whether it's the scent of a business opportunity post civil war or that visitors have just fallen in love with the place and decided to put down roots - I suspect probably a bit of both. Many of the buildings are being ...

    Ancient City of Sigiriya

    4.5
    5 reviews

    Amazing views from the top. History is a bit vague but still, it's the remnants a fortress (or a monastery) in a giant rock - worth seeing. Mild to moderate climb up, so just wear sneakers and be ready for some stairs.

    4.5
    3 reviews

    It's a Buddhist temple located in a numbers of caves in the area. If you are not Sri Lanka, don't forget to buy the ticket at the ticket booth at the starting point of the stair case. There's no ticket booth at the entrance of the cave, and it takes more than 30 mins to get up there. Entrance fee ...

    Yala National Park

    3 reviews

    A bit disappointing, especially if you are comparing it to safaris in Africa. Some of it, clearly can't be helped: there is simply less to see, especially in the heat of the day. Our guide was keen to point out rabbits and Sri Lankan chickens which weren't exactly exciting! Some issues are more problematic and really do need to be ...

    Ancient City of Polonnaruwa

    2 reviews

    The extensive ruins of the second most ancient civilization in Sri Lanka, Pollonaruwa represented a peak of Singhalese Buddhist (and later Hindu) civilization, with an enormous variety of temples, palaces and waterworks scattered thru the dusty jungle of the central plains. If you only have time for one of the 'Cultural Triangle' sights, Pollonaruwa -- far better preserved than Anuradhapura ...

    Ella Rock

    4.5
    2 reviews

    The taller half of the famed 'Ella Gap' and the highest point around the town of Ella itself, the mammoth Ella Rock makes a decent morning or afternoon hike, with great views all the way to the sea on a clear day. While your guidebook will probably recommend four hours roundtrip, it certainly won't take more than three unless you've ...

    The city of Colombo's primary public green space, the Green is where people of the city come in the evening or on sunny weekend days to fly kites, canoodle beneath umbrellas, play cricket, or just stroll in the salt breeze along the seaside promenade. An entirely pleasant place, and good for people-watching. The excellent Galle Face Hotel lies at its ...
