    • 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.

      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,

      wasps at Sigiriya?

      by Joepaman Online Now Apr 9, 2012 at 11:18 AM

      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

    • senior travel at Sigiriya?

      by srazzaz Online Now Nov 14, 2010 at 4:19 AM

      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?

      type of plug

      by Lauz Online Now Nov 1, 2010 at 9:42 AM

      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.
