Hello everyone. First time in SL for the 4 of us. We'll stay for 2 weeks and we've splitted the time management in relation with the coasts.I am in charge for the west coast.
So any suggestions about how to spend 4 days in the best sights, restaurants (no tourists food please), activities etc?
Thank you all in advance guys!
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.
We are visiting sri lanka late September early October staying at cinnamon bey hotel Beruwala can anyone tell me what the weather will be like and any reviews on the hotel? Also recommendations for things to do many thanks :-)
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?
Will they overlook 2 days of overstay? Were you in this situation before? What happened?
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.
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.
