    • How to plan a trip - agency or not?

      Sri Lanka Feb 4, 2015 at 3:50 PM

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Sri Lanka in March 2015 (20-29th), and would like to see Dambulla, Sigiriya, Kandy, tea plantation, and then Yala or some other national park plus 3-4 days on the beach chilling and relaxing. Is this possible or is it too much? Can I arrange all this there with public transport or taxi from a hotel, or should I find some agency in advance to do that for me?
      Which beach do you recommend? We were thinking Bentota or Hikkaduwa, ali other suggestions? Is it possible to swim there or is it just for relaxing on the beach?

      Thanks for all your help,
