3. Sri Lanka

Club Hotel Dolphin

Flights  & airport transfers included

Great value all Inclusive beach resort with all meals, drinks included.

€1109 Oct – Dec

I suggest booking a beach week but adding on at least 4 / 5 days in the cultural centre. This can be done with Tropical Sky at the time of booking or directly with a tour company locally. There are eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites (FYI Ireland has three), thousands of elephants, hundreds of leopards, tea plantations, amazing food and it is so cheap on the ground. The island practically screams adventure. I climbed the 660 foot tall Sigiriya rock fortress  (1202 steps ) and felt a great sense of achievement.
