Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka, and where almost everyone begins their journey in the country.  Don’t let it just be a pit stop, but rather check out the beautiful architecture it has to offer.

Udawalawe National Park

Few things can compare to travelling through Udawalawe National Park on a safari ride.  You’ll be sure to see tons of wild animals along the way, so make sure to bring your camera to capture these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Maybe you’ll even get a selfie with one of the animals if you’re lucky!




Unawatuna is home to stunning beaches that have awesome photo ops like this swing.  Make sure to visit at sunset to get the pink sky effect naturally instead of through filters!
