Are you looking for a holiday destination that will help you forget the daily rigours? Are you looking for a place that will take you to cloud nine, away from the hustle and bustle of your hectic life?
Look no further; Sri Lanka, this tiny island nation shaped like a droplet of water just below the Indian peninsula has much to offer any passionate traveller. Don’t let its size deceive you, Sri Lanka punches above its weight when it comes to tourism.
Have you ever really thought about, and wonder what it is about Sri Lanka that makes it a hot spot for innumerable tourists from all over the world annually?From pristine beaches, the rocky hills, and meandering lush green meadows, a rich wildlife, extensive flora and fauna, and ancient culture, collectively make Sri Lanka one of the MUST-VISIT places on anybody’s list!
For these reasons alone, Sri Lanka should be a destination you consider for 2019. After many years of Civil war, Sri Lanka had fallen off the travel radar. But all that is past now, and looking at Sri Lanka as a travel destination now, well, having been closed of to the world for so long, has had its plus side.
Northern Sri Lanka has opened up to foreign travellers for the first in decades, so now you can experience real Sri Lanka. Untouched, and uncrowded.

Forward Travel are a consultancy, taking the time to talk to our clients, and getting to know exactly what it is they want.

We take you to Colombo, the capital city of the country, to the rolling tea gardens that Sri Lanka is famous for, to Sigiriya, the grand palace at the top of a huge rock. Or if this isn’t your cup of tea, we can bypass that, and take you on a cultural tour that touches the three ancient cities of Anuradhapura, Dambulla and Polonnaruwa.
The possibilities are endless, you just need to discuss with the right people.
Let’s talk about Colombo, and what to do once you are in Colombo?
The Sri Lankan Capital has so many things to offer! Yes; it is a city, but there is a lot on offer, and it is definitely worth spending at least one full day here.
Some of the places of interest include Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple, Sri Kailawasanathar Swami DevasthanamKovil, the new and old KathiresanKovil, the Independence Memorial Hall, Wolvendaal Church, Jami-Ul-Alfar Mosque, Viharamadevi Park, the Pettah Market, National Museum of Colombo, Dutch Period Museum, Zoological Gardens of Colombo, which is also the Dehiwala Zoo. Then you have the Colombo Fort, the Cinnamon Gardens and Moratuwa to explore.
Colombo is the perfect setting to explore in a Tuk-Tuk, ( local 3 wheel taxi ).
If you’re a lover of different foods, wonder thru the streets sampling local foods. Everybody knows that India has some good curries. But try a Sri Lanka curry, and you might find yourself asking who’s really is better.
You can taste a wide range of street foods in Galle, and taste the famous Sri Lankan short eats and tea, wood apple juice, the lion ginger beer along with stout and of course, tantalizing curries.
