Best Places for One Day Excursion

Sri Lank Day Tours, post like a package. I have some places if you interesting for that. I’m not going to say day tour trips are super awesome. A day tour perfects if you are already closer to that location or already arrived at the specific country. Day tour just like a race, that you going to visit more places in a while. Maybe that will work for few locations. In Sri Lanka, we can tell you some of few places, that you can enjoy your day without losing your expectations. Anyway, that will depend on your choice. If you are super crazy travel thirst nomad, I don’t know maybe this will fit for you, maybe not. Every place consists so many hidden places if you wish to dig it deeper. But now you are going to have the best experience in short time.

This harbor not onlpigeon-island-Sri-Lank-Day-Tours-GARI-Tours y a harbor but also a well-protected navy fort. Trincomalee’s superb deep-water port has made it the target for all manner of attacks over the centuries. I can target any country in the world from this very place. Bad ass place isn’t it. Great, I’m not kidding. British army called to this for as Fort Fredric, now Sri Lankan armed forces control this fort. This place visit will also cover Pigeon Island experience in underwater diving.

Do you know about little England? Actually not “a kind of England”. Anyway, it’s like England, But little. Nuwara Eliya is prime hill resort in Central Province of Sri Lanka at a height of approximately 2000m above sea level. The hill station is popular for its fresh, cool and breezy climate throughout the year. There are many British stylish bungalows, tea plantations and many relaxing areas during the travel. Nuwara Eliya is a good escape location for a relaxing break with cool and misty climate.

After you visit this place you can decide this is right about what I told you before. I mean the Little England thing. There are so many places closer to Nuwara Eliya. But I don’t think you ca have enough time to visit all of the places in this place. As I told you before one day tours only cover few basic places, in a short while. But if you stay closer to this places there will be the chance to cover whole places in one day using a package like Sri Lank Day Tours.

I mentioned about a brilliant castle site. I mean about Sigiriya. So I mentioned there were more than 11 Sinhalese Kingdoms in Ancient Sri Lanka. Now I’m going to mentioned about the last Kingdom of my country. So proud of my country also so Kandy-Temple-Of-Tooth-Sri-Lank-Day-Tours-GARI-Tours sad about some historical landmarks we passed. Let us forget about that. Kandy is a major city and the last Sinhalese royal Capital in Sri Lanka, located in the Central Province. The history of this ancient city backs to the 15th century. Temple of the tooth is the most attractive place in the Kandy.

If you are lucky to have you vacation in August month, there will be a most attractive event going to held. That is Kandy Perahara. Maybe you already heard about this even. In this event, you can’t see most colorful culture dancers of Sri Lankans and Ceremonial Tusker carrying the Sacred Casket. That’s is the things you don’t miss in Sri Lank Day Tours. There are some places also closer to the city. If you wish to visit those places that will take extra time for that.

The city blends together with old colonial type building, high-rise commercial building, and hotels. This very city was ruled by Portuguese, Dutch and British. During this era, this was the major port on the east-west trade routes.

There are many ancient colonial time places and many modern places in this City. There’s a little benefit if you wish to choose this tour. After this one, you can directly go to the airport.
