2. Sigiriya

On your family vacation, it is a must to have a place that will involve some physical activity that will build your and your kid’s perseverance. On your visit to Sri Lanka, Sigiriya would be that place. The visit to the place involves a 200 m climb on a winding staircase at this world heritage site. The ruins of the castle of King Kashyapa of 477 AD lies at the end of this climb. On the way to the top, you get to see moats, gardens, and ancient wall paintings. Though you can visit the place any time of the day, it is best to do the climb at sunrise or sunset so that you don’t miss the breathtaking views that will make it worth all the effort 🙂
