      I am in Kandy. I want to know how much to pay for a taxi or a car in Kandy. I need contact numbers and references for good tour and transport operators in Kandy. Would it be wise to take the car to Nuwarara Elliya for sightseeing and retain the car for a night and then come back to Kandy in the same car.

    • Colombo-Sigriya-Dambulla-Columbo possible in a days time?

      Colombo Sep 17, 2015 at 1:05 AM


      Is this kind of Round trip (Colombo-Sigriya-Dambulla-Columbo) possible in a days time?
      We are really short of time in Colombo like for 4 days/3 nights. We plan to do 1 full day in North (covering sigriya/Dambulla), 2 days in South covering Hikkaduwa and Galle and one day in Colombo.

      We are landing in Colombo around 5:30am, and plan to immediately head in direction of Sigiriya from airport. We plan to first halt at Dambulla, and then go to Sigriya rock climbing. Later in evening, we plan to head back for Colombo.

      Is the evening/night travel advisable from Sigiriya to Colombo?

      Further, we are going in end of September, so any of these location are impacted/closed during monsoons? Please advice.

      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?

      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.
