Itinerary & Notes
Ayu-bowan! Welcome to Sri Lanka. Known as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’, the island offers travellers palm-studded beaches, rolling plantations, and sacred sights steeped in spirituality. You can arrive at any time today as there are no activities planned until your important welcome meeting at 5.30 pm. Those arriving early can get into the spirit of seaside Sri Lanka by observing the local fishing craft and perhaps feasting on fresh seafood. Why not warm up your legs for the hike ahead by exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside on a bicycle, which you can rent with help from the hotel reception. This evening, perhaps head out for a meal with your fellow travellers for your first taste of Sri Lankan cuisine.
