    • 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

    • Best non-surf beach in September

      Southern Province Apr 22, 2014 at 2:42 AM

      We're going to be in Sri Lanka in September and we're looking for a beach that is not too rough to spend about 5 days. This is the 'nicer' part of our trip, so we're looking for somewhere nice to stay (though not necessarily a resort, smaller more boutiquey places are our preference). We've been looking at Bentota, Hikkaduwa and Mirissa... but a bit confused as to which one would be best for us ...

    • Sri Lanka travel itinerary

      Sri Lanka Apr 16, 2014 at 9:47 AM

      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?

      The ICE Colombo/Kandy train - is it possible from Kalutara?

      by ukbill Online Now Oct 19, 2010 at 7:47 AM

      I'm staying at the Mermaid in Kalutara early November and I'd really like to try the train from Colombo to Kandy with the observation car. I know this might mean a crazy early morning start way down in Kalutara, but that doesn't worry me.
      So my questions:-
      1. Is is possible to do this journey there and back in just one day, spending several hours wandering around Kandy?
      2. The Srilankan rail timetables I've looked at on-line seem to suggest it is possible, but seem to tell me that there's 3rd class only early mornings from Kalutara to Colombo - is the really early train likely to be uncomfortably crowded?
      3. If it is possible - can I book this all in advance, with a reserved 1st class window seat (both ways) on the ICE train (I think it leaves Colombo at 7am??)
      4. How much will it cost? (if it is possible)
      Thanks for any replies
