      "HELP" Will have to go to from Trinco to Ella (in one day) - August 2016

      Trincomalee Yesterday

      Hello, I miscalculated a bit the lenght of the trip (no direct train lines east of Ella ;-) bummer // or long detour via Kandy. Bus 76/218/314, Trincomalee, Badulla might be an option, and then tuktuk or train to Ella? But impossible to find any details on this line (where to board, how to get a seat, any resemblance of a time table)
      I do not mind a long journey, as long as I have a seat.

      Fresh veggies and fruits?!

      Sri Lanka Jul 11, 2016 at 4:44 AM

      Hi, first time SL traveller... Going to a hotel resort. How safe is it to eat fresh (uncooked) vegetables and fruits without peals? Am I being overcautious? Reason I'm asking is they are probably washed or rinsed in tap water... I got Hep A shot, but am still a bit "afraid".
      Also, whats with coctails with ice cubes?

      Thx...

    • Climbing Sigiriya

      Sri Lanka Jun 28, 2016 at 10:32 PM

      I plan to take an early bus from kandy to Dambulla. Instead of going to the hotel/hostel and to To beat the heat, I will take my luggage with me to Sigiriya to be climbing before noon, as recommended. Would prefer to drop my luggage at a hotel but afraid id arrive too late to climb. Afraid of getting heat stroke.

      1. Is there a place at Sigiriya to store personal items? If yes, cost?
      2. Are you permitted to climb wearing shoes, or is it just socks to the top?
      3. Is it really worth the $40? If one doesn't climb, does one pay less?
      4. Besides water, a camera and perhaps sunscreen, is there anything else one needs if one does climb?

      In case I decide not to stay the night, is there an afternoon bus back to kandy that would arrive before 4pm. The train from Colombo departs at 3pm.

      Thank you?

    • Galle ..where is the hotspot?

      Sri Lanka Jun 28, 2016 at 10:39 PM

      I'm having a difficult time deciding where to stay in Galle. My only requirement is that I be where the action is (perhaps markets, tourist attractions, beach broad walk etc. I don't want remote. Is this place near Galle fort? I'm guessing galle fort is the place to be in galle? Or is it in some remote area of town. Again, any hotel hotel recommendations? Cost is not a concern.. Just want to be In the center of action. I'm there one or two nights depending on how good the place is. It's my last stop before returning to the airport in colomobo.

      Thanks

      The ICE Colombo/Kandy train - is it possible from Kalutara?

      by ukbill Online Now Oct 19, 2010 at 7:47 AM

      I'm staying at the Mermaid in Kalutara early November and I'd really like to try the train from Colombo to Kandy with the observation car. I know this might mean a crazy early morning start way down in Kalutara, but that doesn't worry me.
      So my questions:-
      1. Is is possible to do this journey there and back in just one day, spending several hours wandering around Kandy?
      2. The Srilankan rail timetables I've looked at on-line seem to suggest it is possible, but seem to tell me that there's 3rd class only early mornings from Kalutara to Colombo - is the really early train likely to be uncomfortably crowded?
      3. If it is possible - can I book this all in advance, with a reserved 1st class window seat (both ways) on the ICE train (I think it leaves Colombo at 7am??)
      4. How much will it cost? (if it is possible)
      Thanks for any replies
