Tips for planning tailor made holidays in Sri Lanka

September 13, 2016

Make your holiday planning easy, fun and stress free by choosing tailor made holidays in Sri Lanka and obtaining the benefits of a unique, bespoke and personal vacation. You get to choose your departure date, holiday duration and preferred activities while also being entitled to top notch accommodation, 24 hour support, itinerary notes and detailed maps that can up your holiday standard to a premium version.

Although the planning of your tailor made tour can seem exciting and overwhelming, there are a few points that need careful consideration when deciding what you want in your tailor made holiday.

How to make the most of your holiday time?

You have decided where you want to go, what the things you want to see are and where you want to stay. But sometimes, experiences that take you beyond the main sites are what can add a finishing touch to your trip to make it the most memorable one of all. If you are enjoying the beaches of Kalpitiya in Sri Lanka, try a kitesurfing experience that can literally take your breath away. The choice of such experiences are diverse, particularly in an island like Sri Lanka which has a wide variety of attractive landscapes to indulge in. It could be food, wildlife or an outdoor activity that may interest you. Whatever it is, make sure you incorporate it as part of your tailor made holiday in Sri Lanka.

How long would you like to holiday in Sri Lanka?

It could be either a long-3-4 day weekend or even a month long tour. Deciding the duration of your tailor made tour depends on which part of the world you are visiting Sri Lanka from and also how much of the island you can cover without getting exhausted.  2-3 weeks is recommended for travelers from the other side of the globe because getting over jetlag and long traveling hours takes a few days. For neighboring travelers, a week should suffice to cover the popular tourist attractions in Sri Lanka.

How to decide your preferred pace of travel?

Do you want to tightly schedule your days with as many site visits as possible or are you looking for a more relaxed pace where you can fit in a few site visits each day along with some time to spare for independent exploring? If your itinerary for the tailor made holiday in Sri Lanka includes attractions such as historical sites, national parks, hill country excursions and beaches, do you want to mix it up throughout your holiday or do you want to finish with the touring first and then schedule the relaxation time on the beach? The more destinations you add to your itinerary, the more time you will be spending in travelling and checking in and out of hotels. If you want a more relaxed holiday, consider visiting fewer places so you have more time to spend at each.

How to choose your accommodation

In addition to what you do on each day while on vacation, it is very important to decide where you will stay each night. Tailor made tours in Sri Lanka offer the best possible accommodation to suit your budget. The higher your budget is, the better the standard of your hotel will be. Think about whether you want swimming pool, gym and spa facilities while on holiday to give you an opportunity to relax, or just a comfortable place to sleep is sufficient. Consider adding a camping night in Yala to your tailor made tour itinerary to give you that unique and memorable experience mentioned above.

How to choose appropriate transport options

Getting from one place to another is a vital part of planning your tailor made holiday in Sri Lanka. Because the island is small in size, getting to different tourist attractions take a maximum of 3-4 hours at a time. Hence tourists prefer to travel in a private vehicle and tour the entire country. When exploring the city of Colombo you could choose to experience a tuk-tuk, train or bus ride to add to your list of unique experiences.
