      Hi. Is it advisable to go to these areas last week of October with young kids? We plan to visit Kandy, Sigiriya, pinnawala and so on for a week.
      How bad is the rainy season end of October? Some people are discouraging us from going to that area at that time.

      Thanks for help

      Suitcase on buses

      Sri Lanka Sep 13, 2016 at 12:30 PM

      I'm planning a 16 days long backpacking adventure to Sri Lanka in January 2016. But not litterary. Due to problem with my shoulders I'm gonna need a suitcase instead of av backpack.

      I've heard there's not much luggage storage in the regular, local buses in Sri Lanka. Will not even a cabin size (and a small backpack) fit?

      Is it easy to find bigger, tourist buses just for transportation between places? Like from Kandy or Ella to the east coast or sout coast. This far I've only found tourist companies that offers multi day tours with guided tours, hotels included etc. But I just want the transportation.

      Mostly I will go by train, but I need to take buses or mini buses sometimes.

      How is snorkelling in Mirissa? Should I take my snorkelling gear with me or is it a waste of energy?

      do I need to book ahead?

      by Masha_M Online Now Jan 8, 2014 at 6:25 AM

      We're planning to stay at a mid range place in Mirissa in February. Do you think that we should book ahead or is it possible to find a nice place on the spot? We're planning to stay for about 2 weeks, do you think we can get a good bargain? Thanks

      accomidations in Mirissa?

      by vample Online Now Nov 13, 2003 at 1:51 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Sri Lanka for mid January and plan to stay in Mirissa for 3 days. Any suggestions on where to stay? Paradise Beach Club seems extravagant, particularly when most others seem to be around US$ 5-10, rather than28 and we're just there to kick back n relax on the beach. I want something close/on the beach, with a nice atmosphere and view if possible, clean, air-conditioned. I've seen places mentioned with cabana's and bungalows in Lonely Planet, but I'm not sure what they mean - just small individual buildings rather than rooms in a single building? Also, is there first class on the train down to Weligama or Matara from Colombo? LP lists one *back* but not down. I cant seem to find a good schedule of the routes, times and class options online.
