Sri Lanka is one of the biggest little countries in the world. The island's modest size means that it's possible to get a good taste of what's on offer in just a couple of weeks, although, equally, attractions are crammed together so densely that you could easily spend a year in the place and still not see everything.
If you are planning your travel to Sri Lanka yourself, use these itineraries created by our travel writers as a starting point for inspiration.
Two weeks suffices to see Sri Lanka's headline attractions, while an extra week would allow you to add on the places listed in the itineraries below.
The following itinerary, which picks up on some of the best natural attractions not covered in the Grand Tour, could be done in a week, at a push, allowing plenty of time to combine with other attractions en route during a fortnight's visit to the island.
A slightly offbeat alternative to the Grand Tour, featuring less mainstream destinations mixing religion, culture and wildlife.
