Sri Lanka, South West Beaches
Info : Bicycle tour
Once you move across Bentota Bridge, the lanes fall quiet, flat and shady. Your guide will lead you through pretty villages to the Virahaya Temple and on to Lunuganga House and Gardens, stopping en route for a cool drink overlooking beautiful waterscapes. As you silently cycle by, you will be overwhelmed by the sounds of daily village life moving to the soundtrack of birds singing.
Should you prefer a gentler experience, the same tour can be arranged on three wheels with the use of the traditional Sri Lankan tuk tuk.
This was an excellently organised, tailor-made trip. We stayed in friendly hotels in a number of different locations, including a mud house in the jungle, beside a lake and in the hills among the tea plantations. We had a wonderful guide/driver and visited some amazing temples, spectacular world heritage sites, lovely villages and ate delicious, freshly harvested and cooked local food. It was a fabulous holiday!
