      Independent driver recommendation

      Sri Lanka Oct 7, 2016 at 11:02 PM

      Hi everyone,
      Need help again. Can anyone recommend me a good and safe driber?? To take us around for 6 days?? I had contacted boutique srilanka but it's a little beyond our budget. Read somewhere that independent drivers charge you little less not to mention that it goes straight to their pocket instead of the company. So any suggestion?? Thanks again

      First Time in Sri Lanka, Help with 10 day itinerary

      Sri Lanka Oct 7, 2016 at 11:41 AM

      Hi, after months of planning and changes me and the wife will be finishing our Asia n Oz travels in Sri Lanka.
      This will be our first time here. We will have about ten days here and want some help with a possible itinerary or suggestions where to visit.
      Ideally we would love to spend four complete days by the beach, where snorkelling is good, plenty of beach bars and a variety of restaurants.
      for the remaining six days, we would like to experience the real Sri Lanka.
      We enjoy chilling out (beach bit) ,, wildlife conservation and spectacular scenery.
      travelling distances is no problem for us.
      We fly into Colombo and leave the same route.
      Many thanks in anticipation..

      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

      Good day, We are going to visit Sri Lanka on NY holidays (approx 28.12 - 09.01) with my girlfriend. Unfortunately just found this forum after the decision was made :( We choose the Golden Sun Resort in Kalutara (asked our travel agent to suggest smth - we need not expensive, good beach, smth to go aroun the hotel (disco, bar etc.) and was informed that Kalutara is the best place...Suppose our agent never have been in Sri Lanka at all... Would be grateful if somebody could tell me about the place (Kalutara)-beach, disco (not in hotel), bars etc and hotel (Golden Beach Resort). Thanks in advance
