    • A travel itinerary for a 6 day vacation

      Sri Lanka Jan 16, 2015 at 6:44 AM

      Hi!!

      My 70 yr old parents in law are travelling to Sri Lanka in March 2015. Any recommendations for an easy paced holiday? I'm considering a beach resort (3/4 star) and a city.

      The hotel/resort should have some restaurants/shopping at walking distance. I'm only aware of Bentota as a beach resort, can you recommend any others that fit the bill?

      Also the other city break- Colombo or Kandy? Pros and cons of both would be much appreciated.....

      Thanks so much, in advance!

      Cheers!

    • Esala Perahera Festival

      Sri Lanka Jan 25, 2015 at 7:35 AM

      How much time should one give to seeing this festival? Is the last day 'a must see', or are the other days just as eventful. I am limited on the time in Sri Lanka as I plan to go to Nepal after.

      Any opinions and advice are greatly appreciated.

      3 days in Sri Lanka

      Sri Lanka Jan 4, 2015 at 3:33 AM

      Hi all,

      My boyfriend and I are heading to Sri Lanka in a couple of weeks but are unsure as to where to go in that time. I have been to Kandy etc but he's never been before. We were thinking the South East Coast but are unsure which part. Do we have time to go as far south as Galle or Bentota? We will have 3 days ie landing at 4am on the Friday morning and departing 7pm on the Sunday night.

      I would love to see the fishermen on the stilts as well as the turtle hatchery etc. No strict must sees though as we'll just be there to relax, eat and soak up the culture.

      Many thanks, Natalie

      Colombo To Sigiriya and Back?

      Sigiriya 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.

    • Finding accommodation

      Sri Lanka Jan 15, 2015 at 2:51 AM

      We are travelling to Sri Lanka in February and have accommodation arranged in Colombo for the first couple of nights. We like to keep our options open when travelling rather than book accommodation in advance. This worked well for us in Costa Rica last year. Is it easy to find guest houses at short notice whilst travelling around? We will probably use public transport where possible and maybe hire a car and driver for more remote places. Thanks.

      how is the weather in January?

      by Masha_M Online Now 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!

      by Normyc Online Now Jun 12, 2014 at 2:28 AM

      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

      by tkirti Online Now 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!!

I was thinking about the French Garden Guesthouse (maybe a bit basic????) or the Club Oceanic. Has anyone stayed in any of these? Any advice much apprecitated!! Emma
