An unforgettable city, culture and beach holiday to stunning Sri Lanka before an all-inclusive Emirates cruise – includes all travel and exciting excursions

Strewn with cultural jewels and natural treasures, Sri Lanka is a country to spend a little time over - and with this adventure you'll top off a bucket-list tour of cities, temples and more, with an eight-night cruise around the Far East.

You’ll kick things of in the coastal city of Negombo with an overnight stay at Arie Lagoon, before hot footing it to Sigiriya, bedding down at Hotel Sigiriya for two nights. After a visit to Dambulla Cave Temple, ascend the impressive UNESCO Sigiriya Rock Fortress, witnessing its iconic frescoes, before taking a thrilling elephant safari by Jeep through Minneriya National Park. You’ll also have the chance to visit Medirigiriya Vatadaageya in the medieval capital, Polonnaruwa.

Earl’s Regent Hotel is just a 15-minute drive to the city of Kandy. The city is one steeped in history, owing to its status as Sri Lanka’s capital during the time of the kings. While you'll find no shortage of things to do here, make sure to visit one of the city's most popular cultural landmarks, Degaldoruwa Raja Maha Vihara. This ancient Buddhist rock temple is famous for its beautiful frescoes and its unusual construction within a man-made cave in a large rock. Other must-see attractions include the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Buddhism’s most revered temples. Within the city, you'll also find the Tranquil Kandy lake.

Up next, you’ll visit the luscious Peradeniya Botanical Gardens, all before heading to the verdant surrounds of Nuwara Eliya, nicknamed Little England, where you’ll get the chance to witness a traditional tea plantation and tea factory. Before winding your Sri Lanka tour down in Colombo, climb aboard a traditional train for a thrilling ride from Kandy to Rambukkana.

Take a water taxi to visit Dubai's Old Town nearby and dive headfirst into the enticing aromas of the Spice Market before marvelling at the Gold Souk. After a day of serious bank balance-bruising in the city's sprawling malls, return to your hotel to relax in Zaitoon Spa or go all hooray-Henry British over drinks at the Sherlock Holmes pub.

Boarding the luxe MSC Bellissima cruise ship, you'll enjoy an all-inclusive trip from the dazzling skyscapes of Dubai to a world of sun-kissed white-sand beaches in Abu Dhabi and Yas Island. From the UAE, you’ll sail onwards to Oman’s jaw-dropping capital city of Muscat on the glittering Gulf, before heading the pretty port city of Khasab. You’ll end the cruise back in Dubai, where you'll be transferred to the airport for your return flight home.

Good to know

This holiday allows you to spread the cost of your break by paying only the deposit upfront. The remaining balance is due at a later date and is to be paid directly to the holiday supplier (the exact date will be stated on your booking confirmation).

What is a deposit?
