Hi there. Hubby and I are spending 2 weeks backpacking in Sri Lanka in October. Any advice on travel plan and must-sees would be appreciated as we have such limited time. Cheers
We are planning a trip to Sri Lanka 20:th of Dec 2013 to 10:th of January 2014. Do you recommend to book in advance, or will there be a good chance to find decent accomodation for a familly of 4 (2 adults 2 children aged 9 and 7)?
We plan to go to Unawatuna, Mirissa, Yala (Or Uda Walawe), Ella and Tangalle (or a beach near Tangalle).
We are visiting Kalutara in April and we would like to make a one day trip from Kalutara; I love taking pictures (especially from the local people and their habits and work)
1) I would like to visit (Beruwala, fish market, mosque and lighthouse.) Which would be the best?
2) We would like to go to Galle and visit the town.
3) we would like to do a trip up the Madhu Ganga .
What do you think? Is this possible ? What price should I expect to pay for this trip with a driver? For 2 people.
Does anyone know a trustworthy jewelry (gem) shop in Kandy?

Hello Me and my boyfriend want to travel to Sri Lanka this summer, and was wondering how the weather is in July? This is the only month we are able to take our vacation. I have read that this is monsoon time. But exactly how much rain can we expect? Rainy all day, or a few heavy showers?
hi I wondered if accommodation prices in sri lanka tend to be much lower if you just wander round the hotels as opposed to booking online? I'm planning on going to weligama next week...is there likely to be a shortage of good cheap rooms or will i be ok to leave finding a hotel it until i arrive? many thanks :0)
We'll be over in SL mid Dec. Heading up to Cult Triangle. Wife and two young daughters. Looking at basing for five days (maybe Dambulla) to look around. Accommodation suggestions under50 ? Thanks.
My husband and I plan to visit Kandy, Polonnaruwa and probably Galle of Sri Lanka in the coming February or April. He is very "attractive" to mosquitos and always gets bites in places with mosquitos. Can any VT members advise us whether there will be many mosquitos in the abovementioned places during February and April? If so, we may have to take malaria pills beforehand and wear long sleeves all the time. Thanks for any advice in advance.
We're spending 5-6 weeks in Sri Lanka Dec/Jan. The Maldives ? Easy to get to ? Expensive ? Thoughts ? Thanks. Phil
Planning to visit Sri lanka in June for 8 days. Looking for some advice for places to visit, also if anyone can recommend for any local tour operator in Sri Lanka. I am looking forward for some Beach Time, Water Sports, Wildlife Safari, Nightlife Entertainment.
Advice welcome on a projected itinerary for 13 days in Sri Lanka: Myself and my daughter hope to arrive in Colombo 4th August & transfer to Kandy, Spica Holiday Home has gotten good reviews from your contributors. 4 days in Kandy then move on to Batticloa or Trincomalee to dive for 5 days. We would then move south towards the Yala National Park for maybe 2 days then to Galle from which we would be able to access Colombo for flights home. Is this mad? Not having travelled in Sri Lanka before if this is too optimistic any advice would be appreciated. Cheers, J
