      Need help for itinerary for 12 days and transportation time

      Sri Lanka Nov 25, 2016 at 7:54 PM

      Day 1 I will be arriving late at 11pm. I plan to go Negombo (overnigh at Negombo)
      Day 2: Negombo morning by bus to Anuradhapura (overniight at Annuradhapura)
      Day 3: Anuradhapura afternoon by bus to Polonnaruwa (overnight at Polonnaruwa)
      Day 4: Polonnaruwa (overnight at Polonnaruwa)
      Day 5: Polonnaruwa by bus to Damublla (overnight at Damublla)
      Day 6: Sigiliya, Pidurangala Rock(overnight at Damublla)
      Day 7: Damublla by bus to Kandy (overnight at Kandy)
      Day 8: Kandy by train to Nuwara-Eliya old train station (overnight at 住Nuwara-Eliya)
      Day 9: Nuwara-Eliya (overnight at Nuwara-Eliya)
      Day 10: Nuwara-Eliya by bus to Delhousie (overnight at Delhousie)
      Day 11: early morning climb Adam's Peak, Delhousie by bus to Galle (overnight at Galle)
      Day 12: Galle afternoon by train to Colombo and then to Negombo (overnight at Negombo)
      Day 13: early morning flight

      1. Is that arrangement workable? I can take out Adam's Peak so as to give way to a more reasonable itinerary instead of rushing.
      2. I notice that most people go Delhousie from Kandy. To fit into my friend's schedule as he will not do that, I will go from Nuwara-Eliya. Is there direct bus/transportation from Nuwara-Eliya to Delhousie?
      3. If I take out Adam's Peak, what place should I stay longer?
      4. Beside Days 8 & 12 that I am pretty sure to take train, for other days, is bus better than train?
      5. How frequent is the bus in Sri Lanka? If there is only one or two a day, is my plan feasible?
      Thank you.

      Child Friendly beaches in Sri Lanka

      Sri Lanka Nov 21, 2016 at 3:20 AM

      I will be traveling to Sri Lanka in January 2nd week. We are 2 couples with kids of about 3.5 years of age. Are the beaches safe to take the kids into (with us of course)? This means we will be playing a lot on the beach and wetting our knees in the sea. We wanted to stay either south or west coast as I believe the east coast may be rained out?

      Any thoughts will be most useful.

    • December 2016 Holiday

      Sri Lanka Nov 16, 2016 at 7:27 AM

      Hi,

      My partner and I are traveling around Sri Lanka for 2 weeks in December (16 December to 03 January) and we are SO excited, but very unfamiliar with the country. We need help with suggestions for accommodation that is both convenient, nice and not too expensive. We have looked online but want a more personal opinion / recommendations.

      We are staying in the following places:
      1. Kandy (1 night)
      2. Sigiriya (1 night, after a day in Dambulla)
      3. Kandy (2 nights)
      4. Nuwara Eliya (2 nights)
      5. Ella (2 nights)
      6. Tangalle (3 nights)
      7. Unatawuna (3 nights, day trip to Galle)
      8. Bentota (3 nights)

      We aren't sure how much time to dedicate to Ella and Nuwara Eliya, but at the moment those are our plans.

      Any suggestions for decent accommodation in those cities would be much appreciated. And even suggestions for our itenerary.

      Thanks so much. We are really looking forward to our holiday!

      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.
