3-day Sri Lanka holiday package

A 3-day Sri Lanka holiday package allows you to explore the sights and sounds of southern Asia. Beyond Anuradhapura’s rich past lies Colombo, a fast-rising 21st-century metropolis with over 1300 miles of gorgeous beaches with crystal-clear water, the great Mahaweli River, intriguing culture, and some of the world’s nicest people. Take advantage of your three-day, two-night stay. Pack your bags, for Colombo, Sri Lanka, offers more surprises than you can handle.

When is the best time to book a 3-day Sri Lanka holiday package?

Visitors can visit Sri Lanka at any time of year. Although a beach holiday in Sri Lanka seems appealing, you should proceed with caution due to the unpredictable monsoon cycle, which can last up to six months. In its home areas, the monsoon is responsible for turbulent waves and heavy rain. Choose the west and south coasts for a stunning beach tour from October to April, then continue east from May to October for a rain-free beach tour.

3-day travel package in Sri Lanka: November, December, and January

The months of November and April are the busiest for tourists in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This is the peak season for tourists from other nations to visit the island. With minimal humidity and rainfall, Colombo enjoys ideal weather for outdoor activities.

Due to the peak tourist season, tour packages to Sri Lanka may be more expensive between November and April. Hotels are usually fully booked during the peak holiday season, making it impossible to secure a stay without making an early reservation.

From May to October, off-season tourists can find fantastic prices in Colombo. During the off-season, you can save 25%–50% off the peak-season price of a vacation package. Off-season travel is your best bet for avoiding crowds. However, it is impossible to determine when it will rain throughout this period, and it could rain strongly at any time.

Getting Around Sri Lanka: 3-Day Tour Package in Sri Lanka

With the exception of the congested cities, travelling in Sri Lanka is a snap. Outside of big cities, traffic is often less crowded than in cities like Colombo and Kandy. Outside of big cities, you’ll seldom see another vehicle on Sri Lanka’s well-kept highways. You should rent a private vehicle with a Sri Lankan driver-guide to make the most of your two nights and three days in Colombo.

Taking the bus or train is not a good choice because it consumes your time. The public buses, as well as the trains, are frequently late. The amount of time spent travelling between cities has dramatically increased. Given that you only have three days in Colombo, it is critical that you make the best use of your time.

It is critical to plan ahead of time where to stay, what to see, and how to get there. However, if you plan on visiting distant sites over your two nights and three days in Colombo, the wet season can be tough to manage.

We’ll go over your three options for spending your two full days and nights in Colombo here. Each of our Colombo vacation packages has been meticulously designed to cater to a wide range of interests.

  • 2 nights, 3 days package Colombo -south coast, wildlife and gem pit
  • 2 nights, 3 days package Colombo-Kandy, hill country, ancient temple
  • 2 nights, 3 days package Colombo-Kandy with ancient cities

2 nights, 3 days package Colombo -south coast, wildlife and gem pit

Day:1 The tour begins in Colombo, but because it is private, you can start wherever you like. The journey can begin in Negombo, Colombo, or any of the seaside towns on the western coast. After leaving Colombo, your first stop will be the Madu River estuary, where you will go on a two-hour boat ride. After exploring the Madu River estuary, visit the sea turtle conservation project in Sri Lanka to see and learn about five different endangered sea turtle species. Then proceed to Hikkaduwa. After completing the aforementioned three excursions, you will arrive at Hikkaduwa in time for lunch. Later in the day, meander around Galle’s streets to admire the city’s magnificent architecture.

Staying in Galle for the night

Day:2 After a leisurely breakfast, depart for Sri Lanka’s southern coast. Later, proceed to Tissamaharama, the starting site for Yala National Park safaris. After you arrive at your hotel, unwind. The safari in Yala National Park will take place in the afternoon.

Stay the night at Yala.

Day:3 Begin your day with a journey across the country to Ratnapura (also known as “Rathnapura”), Sri Lanka’s gem capital, where you may visit a gem pit and museum. Return to Colombo in the evening.

2 nights, 3 days package Colombo-Kandy, hill country, ancient temple

Day 1: The tour continues in Colombo as usual, but because it is private, the pick-up time and location are totally up to you and your local driver and guide. If you live in a remote area far from Colombo, there may be an additional transportation cost.

On the first day of your journey, you will depart from Colombo for Kandy. The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and the Kandy Spice Garden are two important stops on the way to Kandy. We believe you will be at Kandy in time for lunch. The journey from Colombo to Kandy takes four hours, with an additional hour spent at each stop along the way.

You can stop for lunch along the route if you want, or you can wait until you get to your hotel and eat there. Lunch is not included in the itinerary, so please make your own plans.

Relax at the hotel pool before the second half of the afternoon begins at 5:00 PM. Your hotel is strategically located in the town centre, so you can easily walk there. In the afternoon, visit the Kandyan cultural show and the tooth relic temple.

Having a Night in Kandy

Day 2: After breakfast, travel to the hill country tourist resort of Nuwara Eliya begins at 8 a.m. Nuwara Eliya is well-known in Sri Lanka as a health resort. The journey from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya takes around an hour, and the city is located at an elevation of 1800 metres above sea level. Today, however, there will be numerous pauses along your route from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya.

Peradeniya, Sri Lanka’s most popular and largest botanical park, will be the first visit. In Pussellawa, our second stop along the way, we’ll visit a tea factory and drink some Ceylon tea.

We only have two stops planned between Kandy and Nuwara Eliya, but I’m sure you’ll make more along the route. The hilly highlands of Sri Lanka are a must-see for their breathtaking scenery. You won’t be able to overlook attractions like well-kept tea plantations, green-topped mountains, waterfalls, woodlands, rice terraces, gleaming reservoirs, and historic temples along the road. During an afternoon stroll, see Gregory Lake, Victoria Park, the Nuwara Eliya Golf Course, and the majestic Theodore-style palaces commissioned by wealthy British planters in the 18th century.

Visiting Nuwara Eliya for the Night

Day 3: After breakfast, depart for Colombo via Kitulgala. Kitulgala’s rough environment, green-capped mountains, waterfalls, rivers, and streams will get your heart pumping. You’ll journey through picturesque mountain ranges and valleys surrounded by tea plantations. Devon Fall and St. Clair’s Falls are two waterfalls that your guide may want to stop at on the way. After noon, depart Kitulgala for Colombo.

2 nights, 3 days package Colombo-Kandy with ancient cities

Day 1: Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle, located in the country’s north-central dry zone, is home to several historical places dating back thousands of years, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From the third century BC to 1815 AD, Sri Lankan monarchs controlled the towns, cities, and villages in this triangular-shaped area. The dry zone of Sri Lanka is home to historic towns where hundreds of kings have reigned, leaving behind a magnificent legacy of irrigation systems, Buddhist temples, palaces, gardens, hospitals, and other structures. For thousands of years, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya, Kandy, and Dambulla have welcomed travellers from all over the world, and they continue to be popular destinations for anyone interested in culture and history. This two-night, three-day Colombo tour will show you the best of Sri Lanka’s ancient cities.

After breakfast, you’ll embark on Sri Lanka’s west coast, where you can begin your own journey in Colombo or another spot of your choice. Anuradhapura, the country’s oldest city, is the first major destination on your three-day tour to Sri Lanka. Anuradhapura, an antique city, is riddled with hundreds of ruins. The ancient metropolis is supposed to have encompassed more than 40 square kilometres in its prime. Modern vandals, relic hunters, or Mother Nature have partially destroyed or damaged many historic sites.

We’ll start our three-hour guided tour of Anuradhapura after lunch. The city trip is a hop-on, hop-off affair that takes you to a variety of significant historical sites such as the Ruwanweli stupa, Sri Maha Bodhi, Thuparama, Jetawanrama, Twin Pond, and many others.

Sigiriya overnight stay

Day 2: After breakfast, depart for Sigiriya and walk the rock stronghold for two hours. Then proceed to Polonnaruwa, another ancient city that thrived in the 10th and 11th centuries. In Polonnaruwa, there are various old Buddhist and Hindu temples, gardens, palaces, lakes, and Buddha statues. As an optional extra, an afternoon safari in Minneriya National Park is available.

Sigiriya overnight stay

Day 3: After breakfast, the last day of the three-day Colombo package includes a trip to Kandy, with stops at the Golden Temple of Dambulla and the Spice Garden. In the early afternoon, we stop by the tooth relic temple on our Kandy city tour. Later, take the Mawanella route to Colombo.

The Tooth Relic Temple and the Golden Temple of Dambulla are also important historical monuments in Sri Lanka, both of which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage monuments. Dambulla’s golden temple dates back to the 1st century BC, while the tooth relic temple was built in the 13th century.

The Kandy City Tour includes visits to the Tooth Relic Temple, the heart of Kandy, the Kandy View Point, the Tea Garden, the Gem Museum, and the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens.

This Colombo sightseeing tour will end at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, located near Kegalle. Then proceed to your Colombo hotel.
