    • Trips off the beach

      Sri Lanka Sep 8, 2014 at 9:06 PM

      Would anyone recommend going with the beach sellers at avani Kalutara ? We r hoping to go to the elephant sanctuary temple of the tooth and the turtles. We have been given a price of £45 each in a mini bus (elephants & temple)we where dubious but the rep wants £95!! But then told us it would be safe to get a. Taxi for the turtles as they didn't do that trip. We therefore assumed it would also be fine to go with 'Frank' thanks Dizzy

      Hey Guys,
      I will Be leaving Now on Monday.So I won't be Annoying ye too much anymore :). From Trinco I was thinking of Heading to Batti and Then Going to Ella.

      I have had a change of mind and am thinking of possibly going to Jaffna and then kandy Instead of Batti And Ella.If you Had to Choose one of those options which Would you go for.

      As far as I can Gather there are no major Sights asuch in Jaffna. I bet it would be different.Is it worth the Visit and then Kandy

      Accommadation Advice

      Sri Lanka Aug 22, 2014 at 3:37 AM

      Hey Guys,
      I was Wondering from anyone who has Stayed in Dambulla, Trinco or Batticoala. Would you recommend any place that you have been, that is not to expensive a guest house maybe.I'd just like to hear from Someone who has been there. I know there are hotels listed etc.

      A Couple more General questions.Is it a good idea to wear Long pants (Full length Pyjamas at night) for mosquito prevention.I do Have a bed sheet and repellent but just curious what others do.Is It Absolutely necessary or would shorts be adequate.

      Finally being from Ireland, Not used to spicey foods etc.Is there any type of food or dish one would recommend that would be safe enough on the stomach for the first couple of days.

      Thanks Very Much

    • Safety warning

      Sri Lanka Sep 2, 2014 at 2:19 PM


      I am planning to travel to Sri Lanka this January (Colombo and Galle), but just as I was about the purchase my plane ticket, the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a warning for citizens not to travel to this country, calling it a dangerous country because of the political turmoil. So, my questions for you are:
      1. How safe is it for 2 women to travel in Sri Lanka? We just want to do some sight-seeing around these 2 cities and spend a few days on the beach.
      2. (this is for those who are or have recently been there) Is it really dangerous for tourists, as our Ministry warns (terrorists attacks, revolts)?

      Thanks in advance!
