    • How to plan a trip - agency or not?

      Sri Lanka Feb 4, 2015 at 3:50 PM

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Sri Lanka in March 2015 (20-29th), and would like to see Dambulla, Sigiriya, Kandy, tea plantation, and then Yala or some other national park plus 3-4 days on the beach chilling and relaxing. Is this possible or is it too much? Can I arrange all this there with public transport or taxi from a hotel, or should I find some agency in advance to do that for me?
      Which beach do you recommend? We were thinking Bentota or Hikkaduwa, ali other suggestions? Is it possible to swim there or is it just for relaxing on the beach?

      Thanks for all your help,

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

      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.
