If you’re keen to get under the skin of the country you’re visiting and gain an insight into local life, our Insider’s itineraries are for you. Designed around unique travel experiences and showcasing lesser-known gems, these itineraries mix adventure with an equal helping of comfort and relaxation.

An Insider’s Sri Lanka showcases some of the Selective Asia team’s favourite spots and special experiences. In addition to some classic highlights such as the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Kandy and Galle, it incorporates some less well-known gems.

You’ll spend two nights in a boutique property that sits high in the hills amidst stunning natural scenery, and rather than wildlife spotting with the masses you will visit the less-frequented national parks of Kumana and Uda Walawe.

Throw in an evening of feasting in Colombo, a scenic train journey and some beach time on the laid-back, low-key sands of Arugam Bay and we think this two week itinerary is pretty special!
