Tour Description

Apart from being the perfect destination vacation spot, Sri Lanka is also celebrated for its landscape, language and most importantly, the eclectic mix of foreign cultures which have deeply influenced the local culture, which can be seen in local arts and architecture. Being one of the most hospitable nations in the world, Sri Lanka is also home to many luxury boutique hotels as well as large hotels, because locals understand that one must not compromise on comfort while travelling. That’s why we have curated a 14 day architecture tour especially for art and culture enthusiasts coupled with some of the best hotels in the nation.
