Cheap London - Colombo Flights

To travel between London and Colombo at a low cost, Easyvoyage provides two major pieces of information: the calendar and the price history for London - Colombo flights. These elements will allow you to analyse the cheapest London - Colombo flights by departure date.

Sightseeing Colombo 1 Holy places and Temples

Sri Pada (Sacred Footprint) is so named because of an indentation on its summit. Also known as Adam's Peak it is Sri Lanka's highest mountain, and is a well-revered pilgrimage of the four major religions. You can also visit the temple and palace ruins of the ancient capital of Anuradhapura, marvel at the Buddhist carvings in the Dambulla Cave Temples, or visit the huge reclining Polonnaruwa Buddha.

2 A cup of Tea

No visit would be complete without a trip into the highlands to experience the culture of tea, for which Sri Lanka is famous. Walk around the plantations, visit the Victorian era factories and taste some fine tea.

3 Arts, Crafts and Festivals

Sri Lanka has over 25 public holidays and between the four major religions there always seems to be a reason for a festival. In the town of Kandy you may catch the well-known Esala Perahera where you can also observe ancient customs and browse for traditional crafts. In Colombo City the markets in the Pettah district are definitely worth a visit.

4 Colonial History

The Portuguese, Dutch, and British have all left something from their colonial days and this can be seen in much of the architecture. The Dutch Fort of Galle is a UNESCO World heritage Site and offers a glimpse into the lifestyle of these bygone eras.

5 Nature and Wildlife

Sri Lanka is a sanctuary to many rare species. Be impressed with the bird watching, or take a safari tour. Ride an elephant at the elephant orphanage or visit the Pigeon Island Marine Sanctuary. Immerse yourself in the bliss of some of the most highly ranked beaches in the world.

Required travel documents for Sri Lanka

Colombo is 4 hours and 30 minutes ahead of London. British citizens will need a valid passport, return ticket, and a visa to enter. With the exception of Singaporean and Maldivian nationals, visas must be obtained in advance before taking a flight to Sri Lanka.
