My first introduction to Sri Lanka came courtesy of Duran Duran’s stunning Save a Prayer video; I remember watching the video as a child and being utterly transfixed by the temples, jungles and beach scenes of this new (to me) exotic place – Simon, Nick, Roger, John and Andy had placed Sri Lanka firmly on the map and I can imagine that they did wonders for tourism if the positive response to their iconic video is anything to go by.

If you have an urge to re-enact your own Save a Prayer video or perhaps you just want to discover Sri Lanka’s hidden gems, then take a two week trip with Kirker Holidays that combines ancient ruins, colourful temples and colonial railways with spectacular wildlife and postcard-perfect tropical beaches. Accompanied by a driver with expert local knowledge, you will be transported to historic sites and exposed to local customs. Furthermore, the two week itinerary is tailored made to your specifications whether you want to encompass a local cricket match, take more time for independent exploration or maybe extend your time at the beach, it is all up to you.image

Highlights of the trip include: visits to the ancient city of Polonnaruwa; Minneriya National Park; the Cave Temples at Dambulla; the Elephant Orphanage at Pinnewala; and the Temple of the Tooth.

This spectacular trip costs from £2,395 (per person) and includes the following:Sri Lanka -THE BEACH, NEGOMBO - COLOMBO -Bath
