Two countries, one trip? Doddle.

A getaway to Sri Lanka offers all kinds of adventures. But, to make the experience even more special, why not add on a second stop? A multi-centre holiday is a fantastic way to see more of the world, in one easy trip. We’ll take care of all the details and logistics, so you can look forward to a hassle-free holiday – all you need to do is decide where to go.

Small but mighty Sri Lanka boasts all kinds of attractions. From natural wonders and UNESCO-protected sites, to multicultural cities and sandy beaches, there’s a never-ending list of things to do. Explore the Cultural Triangle, where you can climb Sigiriya Rock, see the ancient ruins of Polonnaruwa, and marvel at the Dambulla Cave Temple. Sip freshly-picked Ceylon tea in the misty Hill Country, or stroll around laidback cities like Galle and Kandy. And no holiday to Sri Lanka would be complete without visiting one of the national parks. Watch gentle elephants graze in Udawalawe National Park, or go on safari in search of leopards in Yala National Park.

To top things off, Sri Lanka is in a prime location for a multi-centre holiday. Anchored in the Indian Ocean, the ‘Teardrop of India’ is within easy reach of several exciting destinations. Perhaps you’d like to break up the journey to Sri Lanka with a few days in sun-soaked Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Oman? Alternatively, you could embark on an unforgettable Asian adventure with a tour of India, followed by some beach time in Sri Lanka. Or, if you want to add on a week-long beach break, that’s easy too – Sri Lanka is just a stone’s throw away from the picture-perfect Maldives, where you can relax on white sands. Whatever you’re dreaming of, our experts will help you put together your perfect Sri Lanka multi-centre holiday.

The Maldives

One of our most popular multi-centre holidays, Sri Lanka and the Maldives are a match made in heaven. Once you’ve explore the ‘Teardrop of India’, you’ll hop in a seaplane or speedboat and make tracks for your idyllic resort in paradise.

Made up of nearly 1,200 islands, the Maldives is famous for its white-sand beaches and impossibly-blue waters. Palm-dotted isles are surrounded by colourful coral reefs, while luxurious overwater villas branch out into the Indian Ocean. It’s the ultimate place to unwind after an action-packed trip to Sri Lanka.

Thanks to the Maldives’ model of one resort per island, you can look forward to total tranquillity and first-class service. Spend your mornings snorkelling among the corals, or reading on the powdery sands. In the afternoon, why not head out on a diving excursion or go island-hopping? And, at the end of each day, you can watch the beautiful sunset with a chilled cocktail in hand, before feasting on a delicious dinner by the sea.

Abu Dhabi, Dubai or Oman

Want to enjoy a few days in the big city before you jet off to Sri Lanka? Just a seven-hour flight from the UK, the Middle East is the perfect place to break up your journey.

You can start your multi-centre trip in the UAE’s glamorous capital, Abu Dhabi, or world-famous Dubai. Abu Dhabi blends authenticity and modernity, with town-sized malls, incredible theme parks and cultural attractions, including Louvre Abu Dhabi and Sheikh Zayed. Meanwhile, Dubai boasts luxury resorts and record-breaking attractions, like the sky-piercing Burf Khalifa. You can shop ‘til you drop in the malls and souks, go on thrilling desert safaris, or simply relax on the beach ahead of your trip to Sri Lanka.

Alternatively, if you’d like to take things at a slower pace, start your holiday in traditional Oman. Sandwiched between the Al-Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman, scenic Muscat makes a fantastic city break. You can visit fascinating museums, stroll along the sands, and tuck into net-fresh seafood.

India

Sri Lanka takes a more laidback approach to life than its enormous neighbour, but why not take this opportunity to experience both? Our India and Sri Lanka multi-centre holidays give you the chance to soak up all the sights, sounds and tastes of these two vibrant countries.

On a tour of India, you’ll be able to tick off some of the most famous sites in the world, all in one easy trip. As you explore the country’s Golden Triangle, you can soak up Delhi’s buzzing atmosphere and admire Jaipur’s blush-coloured architecture. Gape at the glorious Taj Mahal, visit the Amber Fort, and take plenty of photos of the Palace of the Winds. Or perhaps you’d prefer to focus on vast Rajasthan – India’s biggest state – and visit Bikaner, Jodhpur and Udaipur? Whatever you’re looking for, our experts will help you choose the right tour for you.

Once you’ve had your fill of India, you can retreat to sleepy Sri Lanka for some well-earned beach time.

Best time for your multi-centre

On your multi-centre holiday, you want to be able to experience both places at their very best. So you’ll need to plan around the weather in Sri Lanka and your second destination.

Sri Lanka has two monsoon seasons, but it’s always dry somewhere. January to March and June to September see sunny weather and low rainfall in Sri Lanka’s tropical interior. The south coast is best between December and March, while the north and east coasts are at their loveliest between May and September.

Meanwhile, the Maldives’ dry season runs from December to April. So, to enjoy both places at their peak, try to book your holiday between January and March. Alternatively, if you’re happy for the temperatures to be a little cooler, you could book between June and September. 

The Middle East is scorching hot during the summer months, so it’s best to plan your trip between December and March. The same is true for a multi-centre trip to Sri Lanka and India as, generally speaking, India sees its best weather between October and April.
