Hello, I am planning a trip to Srilanka with family from 15th August to 20th August. Possible itinerary looks like 2 day/nights in Kandy, 1 day/night in Nuwara Eliya and 2 day/night in Bentota? I hope this would be an ideal itinerary. Is it good to depart from Bentota or Kandy? i have a flight departing at 4 PM, so what time is best to leave Bentota? Also, is there a dining place/restaurant for lunch at Colombo airport?
Any recommendation for a good tour operator or better to organize it with the tour desks at hotel? I also heard that tourists were robbed at some guest houses or hotels? is it true?

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.

Hello! Planning a trip to Sri Lanka with a few friends. It's only for a week, so trying to find a place where we can maximize our time. We are 20-somethings looking for a nice, relaxing beach, somewhere to get a massage, and a little bit of nightlife. Basically, a few Western English teachers looking for a beautiful getaway from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia! Any suggestions on where to stay? I've heard good things about Galle. . . Thoughts?
Hello everyone. My partner and I are considering making a spontaneous trip to Arugam Bay on the East coast of Sri Lanka around the 15th March for 4 weeks. We both surf so will plan to spend a lot of time in the water or on the beach. Does anyone know, from experience, what the weather is like at Arugam Bay during March? I've read a lot of conflicting info saying that the 'season' starts in March or April but nowhere really talks much about what the weather is doing.
Also, is it the kind of beach where you can sunbathe and not get hassled?
I will be in Kandy on 17 August. It will be the date of the Kandy 3rd Randoli Perahera festival.
I'll be staying in the hotel Amaya Hills and need information on how to go/and return from the hotel to the place of Kandy Perahera.
It is also necessary to pay a ticket or is a public event?
I appreciate any information
1) Suggested itinerary? 2) Should I go with a guide/car for the whole trip? Any suggestion for which agency? 3) How is the weather this time of the year, for beach or tea plantations or otherwise?
We are avid photographers, love great food and just plain ol' exploring.. any other tips welcome.

Hi, my brother and I arrive in Colombo from Chennai for the final five days of our 3 month trip to South Asia (we fly back to London from Colombo) and I was wondering if accommodation was as readily available as cheap as it can be found in India? We're currently paying between 400 and 800INDR mark (currently in Goa but that's been the average price range for most of India) and are hoping for similar prices in Colombo. Are we going to be in luck or should we be prepared to dig deep? Thanks for any and all responses.

Hello, hope everyone is well! I’ve wanted to go visit Sri Lanka for many years but haven’t been able to do so because of the political instability. Now that everything is better, I would like to finally make the trip to Sri Lanka. Would it be better to plan on my own or go with a tour group? What are the must see of Sri Lanka? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
