      Buses with my 2 year old

      Sri Lanka Jan 10, 2016 at 9:21 AM

      Leaving for Sri Lanka on 4 Feb. As travelling with our 2 year old we have already planned a vague itinerary. First stop is Kandy for 5 nights where the plan is to do either 2 or 3 day trips from Kandy to see Sigiriya, Dambulla, Polonnaruwa.

      My 2 questions are; if we were to do just 2 of the 3 sites which would be your recommendation (am worried 3 long days may be a little much for our little one)? And also are the buses fairly easy to find (regarding where to get on and off), Is the wait long?

      Is there a better alternative that doesn't involve drivers for the day (we are doing this on a semi shoestring!)?

      Thanks! Zohar

      Looking for people to share one or two-day trips from Kandy.
      Just moved here and would like to discover some nearby places, from Cultural Triangle to Tea plantations and beaches.
      Suggestions accepted.

      Hello, myself and 3 other friends will arrive in Kandy a day in March around midday. Is it best to hire a tuktuk driver for the afternoon to take us to all the places of interest? How much is the usual cost for this - say from midday - 5pm? Or do you think it is best to jump in a tuktuk after each stop? Appreciate any advice on this, and also what order is best to see the sites? Thank you!

      1. Is there a left luggage facility at the Katunayake International Airport? Is it open 24 hours? 2. 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. 3. 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. 4. Any information on frequency of the above buses would be very useful. 5. Would highly appreciate your kind advice and hints. We intend to use public transport, as this would enable to mingle with the local people. 6.
