A big town near the centre of the island, Dambulla is a great base to explore the wide array of natural wonders and historic sites in this fascinating area. Built as a royal citadel on top of a 200m high rock mass, Sigiriya is an impressive fortress with some fantastic views, glorious water gardens and 5th-century frescoes. Minneriya National Park plays host to some of Sri Lanka's favorite creatures - sambar deer, wild boar, peacocks, water buffalo, crocodiles and, of course, elephants.
Dambulla's most famous attraction is a beautifully preserved complex of cave temples, which contain paintings and ancient Buddha statues, some carved from the solid rock.
The village of Digana is home to Tamarind Gardens, a unique homestay on a working farm - experience rural life and join in as many activities as you wish.
Get into the spirit of seaside Sri Lanka in Negombo - a historical commercial centre surrounded by a fascinating network of canals teeming with rural life.
