    • Shore Excursion in Colombo

      Colombo Apr 2, 2015 at 4:14 AM

      On a cruise that will be in Colombo for 1 day in June. Can anyone suggest a good tour suitable for 2 senior ladies. Found several Tour Operators offering different tours but I am unsure if they are all reliable. We were thinking of doing a city tour and found one that would pick us up from port, drive to city, then take us on a 4 hour Tuk Tuk sight seeing tour, then return us to port. We have been Tuk Tuks previously in Thailand and assume it would be similar. Is it safe in general and is it recommended to use operators from on line sites. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Itinerary opinion: Adam's peak vs Sigiriya

      Sri Lanka Mar 31, 2015 at 7:56 PM

      I will be arriving in Sri Lanka on a Sunday morning and staying until the following Sunday morning. A few of the key items I want to see are Kandy tea estates, Badulla, Yala Safari, Marisa beach, and Unawatuna. I also wanted to see either Adam's Peak or Sigiriya, but I feel it's unfeasible to do both. Are there any recommendations regarding Adam's Peak vs Sigirya Rock?

      Colombo To Sigiriya and Back?

      by Bladewings Online Now Jan 20, 2015 at 8:44 AM

      Hi can anyone advise me, how much I should expect to pay for a driver from Colombo to Sigiriya and back on the same day? Leaving at about 5am in the morning. I was told it is doable and was quoted, 13,500 Rupees. I was also quoted 5000 Rupees for a driver for a day by someone else but the Sigiriya trip may be considered a bit longer than a standard "day". How does the price sound? Too expensive or reasonable?

      Thanks.

      Hi,
      We'll be visiting Sigiriya and we'd like to see Sigiriya Rock, but we will not be staying in Sigiriya overnight. Could you please advise if there is any safe place in Sigiriya where we can leave our luggage for a few hours ? Paid storage lockers or any storage office ?
      regards,

      Hello
      Basic question, is there still a wasp nest at Sigiriya?
      If so, what about the location, could this pose a risk to the public?
      Many thanks

      I am organizing a trip for my parents to Sri Lanka. I am wondering if it is reasonable to take them to Sigiriya. If they get tired and cant make it to the top, will there be things to see along the way which make it worthwhile?

      I'm trying to find out what type of plug adaptor I will need for Sri Lanka. I've looked on the internet but have seen conflicting information. Some say Sri Lanka uses the same as England,(i know the voltage is the same) some say it's the same as the old style English plug and some say it's the same as they use in India. Does anyone know?

    • Accomodation in Sigiriya

      by urssa Online Now Jun 27, 2010 at 12:45 AM

      Hello,

      we are coming to Sigiriya around 22. July. Do you think we need to book accomodation in advance or can we count on some available rooms when we show up?

      Is there some accomodation where we can book via internet or at least arrange booking by email? I haven't found anything yet.

      We are looking for a budget accomodation and didn't find any hostels in Sigiriya. If there's anything in Dambulla of that kind it's fine with us, too.

      How long would it take for a privately hired car for the trip from Sigiriya to Colombo? I am planning on leaving Kandy by hired car, catching sunset in Sigiriya and staying one night, visiting the rock area for the morning/afternoon, and then trying to get back to Colombo by that evening.
