Hi Guys, I'm Samantha and may be travelling to Sri Lanka in January (2015), with my son. Is mid January a good time for a swim at the beach at Bentota? i'm assuming it's quite a safe beach. My son is autistic and loves water. We will likely stay in Dehiwala. A quick search told me I can get an express train early morning to Bentota and also return via train the same day in the late afternoon.
Does anybody have experience with renting a car in August? Is it easy to rent a car in August as soon as I arrive in Colombo? Or are chances high everything is booked? I contacted a car rental company in Colombo and they want me to do an advanced payment to confirm the reservation. Perhaps logical but I rather don't. So I am now figuring out what to do best.
Thanks for any reply.
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 ?
I was going to go to Bentota but now Unawatuna beach looks very nice. It is a bit of a further trip. Are there any clean toilets on the trains? The trip is a bit over 2 hours and I'll be with my son. It could be a real problem!
Probably from 10 to 24 January. Arriving from Qatar, our first visit (we live in Barcelona).
Also we wont to stay a few days (5-6) in Maldives, and it seems than the best way is a return trip from Colombo.
What visits do you advice in SLanka? Cities, NP or nature, people, temples,...
Going around the country, is a good idea to rent a car? IIs it better the train and bus and some taxi or that is too hard (I am 70, in good condition!, travelling with my wife, also fit for the age).
Do you know a good agency, just to ask for a private travel, and to know prices?
Thanks, my friends, for any help
