Learning While Travelling in Sri Lanka

January 9, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

School is out, but that isn’t where the learning ends. Studies show that kids who stay active during their school holidays actually perform better than kids who spend their school breaks in front of the TV. Family travels to cultural destinations gives children the opportunity to see the incredible diversity of the world to better prepare them for life in a multicultural, globalized world.

Sri Lanka is ideal for a holiday with some engaging learning opportunities for the whole family. Khiri Travel Sri Lanka can arrange a weeklong tour for traveling families to examine evidence of ancient cultures, see wildlife in their natural habitat, and meet friendly people. The children and adults alike can also see how spices are cultivated and explore the cultural traditions of Sri Lanka’s multiple religious places such as mosques, churches and Buddhist temples that remarkably co-exist all on the same city block. Going on a photo treasure hunt through the historic fort in Galle can help children appreciate the remnants of colonial architecture left behind from the era of European imperialism in Sri Lanka.

Of course it’s important to make sure the learning opportunities are active, hands on and fun! So kids do not get bored and to give travelers more inspiration, our resourceful Khiri Travel staff created an example of a family holiday itinerary of Sri Lanka that everyone will enjoy.

For more information about things to do in Sri Lanka with the family, such as visiting ancient places, going on wildlife safaris and exploring the historic Fort Galle, contact [email protected].
