    • Best place to stay for a short holiday with two kids

      Sri Lanka Jul 3, 2015 at 7:55 AM

      Hi All,

      This July we're travelling to Sri Lanka with two small kids for only 5 days. Yes, I know, it's too short but we want to make the best out of it.

      Can anyone advise me what's the best place to stay to see some of the highlights. We would love to see a combination of culture and nature, but want to stay in a hotel at only one place (or max 2).

      TIA,

      Regards Evelien

    • Which provider gives the best coverage?

      Sri Lanka Jul 2, 2015 at 5:13 PM

      I have recently subscribed to Etisalat, and the signal strength is quite weak in some parts of Sri Lanka. What's your experience? Airtel any better? BTW, I use laptop and dongle, not those 'smart' phones.

      how is the weather in January?

      Trincomalee Nov 13, 2014 at 10:11 PM

      Hi, how is the weather in January in Trincomalee and at the beaches on the East coast? I know it's rainy season, but can you still enjoy a nice beach holiday? Are most hotels open? Do people still stay on the beach? Or is it all deserted due to bad weather? Would south coast be much better? Or just a little better?
      Thanks!

      Hi all. I am really struggling to find good accomodation in and around the Trinco/Nilaveli area for August. Ideally, we'd like a beach front location, quite secluded and happy to go basic as long as it's clean and has mosquito nets! Our budget is £60pn - does anyone know of anywhere they'd recommend?

      Thanks :)

    • Advice Needed!! Trincomalee, Batticoloa, Ampara

      Trincomalee Feb 17, 2010 at 12:45 AM

      Hey guys,
      My friends and I are trying to plan a trip through the east. We are starting in Kandy and then going up to Trincomalee, then Batticoloa and lastly Ampara and back to Kandy.

      I've been trying to figure out how to get from Kandy to Trinco and I've never been more confused. Does anyone know if there are direct buses from Kandy to Trinco or any train service? If not, what are best routes from Kandy to Trinco using public transportation?

      I've also been trying to find some budget accommodations in Trinco and it's been pretty much impossible. Does anyone know of places that are around Rs.1000-1500 per night for a double room?

      Also, what is the best way to get to Batticoloa from Trinco? Also, is it possible to get from Batti or Ampara back to Kandy or would I have to go back to Trinco to find public transportation back to Kandy?

      Sorry for all the questions! Any other advice/tips you have regarding the east coast would be much appreciated.

      Thanks!!
