      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

    • 1 day in Kandy

      Kandy Jan 27, 2016 at 6:50 AM

      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!

      How is snorkelling in Mirissa? Should I take my snorkelling gear with me or is it a waste of energy?
      Thanks!

      do I need to book ahead?

      by Masha_M Online Now Jan 8, 2014 at 6:25 AM

      We're planning to stay at a mid range place in Mirissa in February. Do you think that we should book ahead or is it possible to find a nice place on the spot? We're planning to stay for about 2 weeks, do you think we can get a good bargain? Thanks

      accomidations in Mirissa?

      by vample Online Now Nov 13, 2003 at 1:51 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Sri Lanka for mid January and plan to stay in Mirissa for 3 days. Any suggestions on where to stay? Paradise Beach Club seems extravagant, particularly when most others seem to be around US$ 5-10, rather than28 and we're just there to kick back n relax on the beach. I want something close/on the beach, with a nice atmosphere and view if possible, clean, air-conditioned. I've seen places mentioned with cabana's and bungalows in Lonely Planet, but I'm not sure what they mean - just small individual buildings rather than rooms in a single building? Also, is there first class on the train down to Weligama or Matara from Colombo? LP lists one *back* but not down. I cant seem to find a good schedule of the routes, times and class options online.
