There's a lot to see in Sri Lanka—two weeks will allow you enough time to explore all the island's top sights or even travel to other countries in the surrounding area. However, you can still enjoy Sri Lanka in a shorter time frame. Five days is long enough to see the highlights or spend some time relaxing on the beach, while with seven days, you can go deeper and experience multiple regions.
In Sri Lanka, warmth and good weather can be found year-round in different parts of the island. Thanks to the country's relatively small size, a getaway spent chasing pockets of favorable weather can be a great way to see the island's many highlights.
