    • Sri Lanka travel itinerary

      Sri Lanka 5 hours ago

      Hi guys! I know am asking a very vague question but could help me in planning itinerary for my expected tour to Sri Lanka.

      Am looking to travel there sometime in Jan or Feb 2015 (I know I have started planning to early), I searched various travel sites and most of them have similar itinerary as below:
      Day 01 : Colombo - Kelaniya - Colombo
      Day 02 : Colombo - Pinnawala - Dambulla
      Day 03 : Dambulla - Sigiriya - Matale - Kandy
      Day 04 : Kandy - Peradeniya - Kandy
      Day 05 : Kandy - Hakgala - Nuwara Eliya
      Day 06 : Nuwara Eliya - Bentota
      Day 07 : Bentota - Departure from Colombo

      I don't know much about the country, so am not sure if the above cities/places and days are enough to see Sri Lanka. Can someone help me.

      Also noticed that no company includes Jaffna. I would like to visit as have heard a lot about it but is it advisable to go there?

    • August Itinerary - HELP NEEDED

      Sri Lanka Apr 6, 2014 at 10:09 AM

      Hello all. I am planning a 15 day trip in August for myself and my boyfriend (both mid 20s). Please can you let me know your thoughts on whether it's feasible (or if we're missing something important?). We want a good balance of beach, exploring local cultures & authentic food. Our priorities are at least one beautiful beach resort (weather permitting) with luxury accommodation, one safari experience (with tree hut lodge stays), and some great local food / markets. We would enjoy some evening nightlife for some of the trip too. Our plan so far is:

      Colombo - head straight to Negombo for 2 nights
      Kandy for 3 nights
      Nuwara Eliya for 2 nights
      Yala National Park for 2 nights
      Ella for 1 night
      Beach Resort (Tangalle / Mirissa) for 4 nights
      Galle for 1 night
      Train to Colombo for flight home

      Hi All,

      I'm from Australia and looking for some budget accommodation in Kandy Sri Lanka. was going through most travel sites and narrowed down to a few. I was wondering if anyone has stayed at this place called Sedevo Chalets? They offer private bungalows and looks pretty decent. Or what other place/s would you recommend with similar setup?

      Day trip to Dambulla

      What is the best way to do a day trip to Dambulla from Colombo? I will only be in the country for two days and want to spend a full day in Colombo. Is train + bus from a nearby station a good idea? Obviously, speed is a concern although I do not mind leaving Colombo early and returning in the evening. I will be there in March, if that makes a difference. Ideas and prices are much appreciated.

      Can anybody offer us some advice on attending the above festival. We will be staying in Beruwala from 10th August until the 24th August 2013, but fancy travelling to Kandy for the above festival and staying for one night. We would like to know what date would be the best to go, where we could stay for the night, and how to go about booking seats to watch. Also, it would be nice to know whether there are any places we could stop off at along the journey from Beruwala to Kandy. We will be travelling with our teenage son, so anywhere we stay would need to be child friendly.

      Any advice would be welcome.

    • Travelling around hill country and to the south

      Nuwara Eliya Nov 26, 2012 at 4:48 AM

      Hi hi,

      I am a backpacker heading to Sri Lanka in a week's time. What would be the recommended itinerary? I will be staying in Negombo before heading to kandy and then to the hill country. i would like to be able to go horton plains and adam's peak. How many days would be sufficient to go around the hill country and where else would be recommended to go?

      After the hill country, i would like to head down to the beaches in the south. i heard that mirissa and unawatuna should not be missed. how do i go about arriving at any of these destinations from the hill country? are there public transport available and how long would the journey take?

      Thank you.... : )

    • Self drive hire Kandy

      Kandy Aug 13, 2012 at 11:24 AM

      Hey,

      After doing (self drive) the A2 from Colombo to Matara and back, we took the train to Kandy, where we are now.

      We would like to explore the central province also by self drive but we find it quite hard (read: impossible) to find a rental car. Because I'm 6'8'' a small car doesn't fit.... (However I'm not looking for a SUV in particular.)

      Does somebody already rented a self drive car in Kandy? Where was the car rented? Was the car, the service and the price ok?

      We are hoping for some quick responses because we are only staying here until Saterday (We would like to rent from wednesday to Saterday).

      Looking forward to your feedback.

      Greetings,

      CG&KC
