Women doing it for themselves

FOR women who enjoy the idea of globetrotting on their lonesome, Sri Lanka Unbound has crafted an itinerary specifically catering to the appetites of solo female travellers.

The 14-day adventure comes with visits to one of the country’s large tea plantations, the opportunity to participate in cooking classes run by locals, a boat safari in the Gal Oya National Park, and a luxury beach stay at a five-star resort in Tangalle.

Small group tours are also included, run by the tour operator’s Melbourne-based Sri Lanka specialist Glenda McMillan-Andersson.

Highlights of the trip include a visit to the Galle Fort in Tangalle, relaxing in the Madulkelle Tea & Eco Lodge with views of the Knuckles Mountain Ranges, and checking out the plethora of street cafes, boutiques and artisan workshops in the Sri Lankan capital of Columbo.

The Sri Lankan Discovery package is priced from $7,940 per person and includes English speaking guides throughout and entrance fees for all attractions listed in the itinerary.
