    • itinerary,pinnawala,dambulla,sigiriya,polonnaruwa Kandy

      Sri Lanka Nov 8, 2015 at 8:48 AM

      I will be travelling from Negombo to Kandy and want to visit the elephant orphanage at Pinnawala,caves temples at Dambulla, Sigiriya rock and polonnaruwa. How much time should I allow for this. I had thought to leave Negombo early morning,stopping off at pinnawala and then heading onto dambulla and visiting the caves in the evening.staying over in Dambulla (?) then visiting the rock on the way to Kandy. I am not sure where polonnaruwa fits into this, whether i can fit this in before setting off for Kandy from Dambullal or as a day trip from Kandy.Any help would be appreciated.I will probably use taxi for transport between the main places.
      Thanks Gill

    • 6 days itinerary for Sri Lanka

      Sri Lanka Oct 31, 2015 at 5:56 AM

      Hi all!

      2 of us are taking a trip to Sri Lanka in November this year for 6 days. After going through several travel blogs and reviews, I have finalised an itinerary such as this one which has a mix of nature, culture and wildlife. We do not want to stay too long at each place and would like to cover more at a reasonable pace with a rented car+driver arrangement.

      Any help / inputs on this will be much appreciated! Also mainly want to decide between Knuckles and World's End (for a day hike, knowing the entry fee differs a lot).


      Day 1 : Negombo - arrive at dawn and head to Pinnewala (drive 2 Hrs) - spend some time, leave for Kandy (drive 1.5 Hrs), stay overnight

      Day 2: Kandy - day trips to Dambulla (drive 2.5 Hrs) Sacred Tooth Temple, Kandyan dance performance), Dambulla and Sigiriya (drive 30 mins) Rock Fortress, head to Polonnaruwa (1.5 Hrs), stay overnight

      Day 3: Day in Polonnaruwa, then head to Knuckles (drive 3 Hrs), stay overnight

      Day 4: Knuckles day hike, stay overnight

      Day 5: Leave for Mirissa (drive 6 Hrs!!!), stay overnight

      Day 6: Day trip to Galle (drive 1 Hr), move on to Colombo (drive 2 Hrs) and return to Negombo for the flight back


      Instead of Knuckles, head to Nuwara Eliya

      Nuwara Eliya - 2 days

      - Train from Kandy to Nanu Oya and then Nanu Oya to Ella

      - World’s End hike

      Thanks a ton in advance for your help!

    • bus from dambulla to colombo fort

      by Online Now Feb 9, 2014 at 6:37 AM

      Is i possible to take a direct bus from Sigiriya or Dambulla to Colombo Fort station? I have tried to find a bus plan, but did not succeed. It looks as if we maybe can grab a bus passing through from Trincomalee ? If this is correct, what time, and how often do the bus stop in Dambulla and what is the driving time to Colombo approxemately ? (We are planning to travel to Bentota by train the same day). Hope someone can help with information

      Day trip to Dambulla

      by cookb Online Now Dec 6, 2013 at 6:13 PM

      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.

    • Travel to Dambulla & back

      by SKMAL Online Now Sep 17, 2004 at 2:11 PM

      A group of us are planning to visit Kandy and Dambulla. From Dambulla, is there a bus to Colombo – preferably AC Bus starting from Dambulla – as the transit buses are crowded and we cannot get seats. Alternatively, we could go to Dambulla first by AC Bus from Colombo and then from Dambulla travel to Kandy. Are there buses from Dambulla to Kandy - preferably AC Bus starting from Dambulla – as the transit buses are crowded and we cannot get seats. Any information on frequency of the above buses would be very useful.
