  • Like almost everyone else who Polonnaruwa visits the archaeological sites visited. In our travel package, the driver had already bought cards that you need throughout the entire visit. We started with a visit to the museum where you get a nice overview about what you get to see during the tour. In our view, absolutely useful to be the first to visit the museum for a better understanding. Then visited the complex with the bicycle. For us it was a visit to the point where a number of Buddhas was hewn out of the rock, of which the reclining Buddha is the absolute highlight. Takes water with it during the tour because it is almost always warm.

  • We chose not to safari for 3 elephants and 5 birds... However since sigirya go on polonnaruwa see the site of this ancient capital... Was great. We opted for the cycling. The setting is relaxing, clean and very well maintained... Take the time to stroll (between 4 and 6 h). Just the price of admission to $ 25 Us is a bit too much when you add the transport on the day.
