DAY 01 AIRPORT - BENTOTA - MIRISSA

Journey will start form Colombo, Through out the year Sri Lanka is the best place to see the whales., the humpback and the blue whales, will nonchalantly glide past you, when you embark on a whale/ dolphin watching excursion off the Southern, Eastern or the West coast of Sri Lanka. The ideal locations for whale watching would be Mirissa and Trincomalee while the sea off Kalpitiya teems with an abundance of dolphins. 

With the whale watching season in Mirissa being in full swing and many local and foreign tourists gathering to the Mirissa harbor, The coast guards also make sure that the boat operators; crew and the tourists abide the safety precautions and regulations before and during their tour of observation.

DAY 02 MIRISSA - GALLE

Basking on the southern coast of Sri Lanka in the bay of Galle, the Fort was first built by the Portuguese in 1588 before being extensively fortified by the Dutch in the mid 1600s. Recognized by UNESCO for its cultural heritage value, the Fort was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988 as a unique exposition of "an urban ensemble which illustrates the interaction of European architecture and South Asian traditions from the 16th to the 19th centuries." . 

Whether on a‘guided walk or strolling along the narrow streets, today you will see clear and well maintained evidence of the Dutch influence. Although these days there are some notable differences to 400 years ago.

Today a Museum occupies the stables; jewellery  shops abound; cafes emerge from behind restored columns; interior design shops mingle with book stores and fashion outlets; and to cap it all the Dutch Governor’s residence is now the luxurious Amangalla Hotel.

Accommodation has also changed and there is something for every budget and preference within these historic ramparts .

Galle is the cultural capital of the southern coast of this magical island and along with the seven other UNESCO sites in Sri Lanka, Galle Fort is a must see for everyone.

DAY 03 GALLE - COLOMBO - AIRPORT

Colombo, Sri Lanka‘s bustling commercial hub, is located on the country’s west coast and with a population of between 800,000 and one million (estimates vary) is by far the country’s biggest city, as well as the most developed. Its natural harbour at the mouth of the Kelani River was a magnet for successive traders and conquerors – initially the Arab merchants, then Portuguese, Dutch and British imperialists.
