has anyone been to Sri Lanka before - I am very tempted by the January departure...

I'm a big safari fan so that element really interests me - elephants are probably my favourite!

what are the other places on the tour like?

Hi there, I went to Sri Lanka around about 2007 with another company (not Riviera) so can't comment on the exact itinerary. the elephants were a big highlight and you can get really up close to them. I liked Kandy, especially the botanical gardens and some of the scenery around the tea estates is breathtaking - very green! I would recommend it as a country - lovely people and lovely food! It may also make you want to visit Kerala as well which is another favourite of mine

Great choice. Me and my sister did this trip with Riviera last February and it was beautiful - highly recommend it

Me too BJM1965. Maybe we can keep in touch and possibly meet up at the departure airport?
