A great teardrop in the Indian Ocean. Mountain-top plantations that supplied enough tea for all of England. Antique trains with steam engines carrying passengers past incomparable scenery. Endless white beaches. Spices enjoyed around the world. Buddhist pilgrims, temples and relics. British Victoriana. Herds of elephants. Fishermen on stilts. Fortresses with cannons. A shopping and dining paradise. All of these and more are what makes Sri Lanka so exciting.
Only hours from Delhi, Bangkok and Singapore, this once-British island nation has dazzling things for just about everyone. There is more to Sri Lanka than Colombo and Negombo. Other destinations get more attention from us for their unspoiled beauty and their history. How about a big game safari in Yala National Park, or a ride on the world's most scenic railroad. Fancy trying your hand at picking tea on a hillside plantation? Or how about some spa time at a classy beach-side resort. While Purple Dragon are Asia's gay travel pioneers, anyone can join our trips. Every tour is as different as our customers who enjoy them.
Sri Lanka, our newest destination, launches in November 2017. Initially, all of our itineraries will be on a custom tour basis. However, we are working on several sample itineraries of varying length that will give you a starting place from which you can add or delete destinations. Our initial suggested programs will be 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13 nights, and you will have a variety of hotels to choose from. We are going to be adding them here one by one as soon as we can.
If you can't wait that long, or if you want to be notified when we add Sri Lanka content to our website please let us know.
Once known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka has come of age.
