Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
On the 20th (Wed), stroll around Galle Face Green and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple. On the 21st (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour.

For photos, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Colombo trip itinerary site.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Colombo is an approximately 9-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2.5 hours traveling from Riyadh to Colombo. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Riyadh in January, with highs in Colombo at 37°C and lows at 27°C. On the 22nd (Fri), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Kandy.

Kandy

Nestled between mountains in inland Sri Lanka, Kandy proudly bears its World Heritage Site designation while remaining culturally independent and colorfully picturesque.
Step out of Kandy to go to Pinnawala and see Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanical Gardens, don't miss a visit to Degaldoruwa Temple, look for gifts at Prestige Selections - Batiks, Handicrafts and Gift Items, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic.
