      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.

      Tea Plantations

      by BB1986 Online Now Oct 4, 2014 at 3:25 PM

      I am visiting Sri Lanka in a few weeks & intend on spending a day in Nuwara Eliya whilst there. This will no doubt be one of the highlights of the trip because I am a lover of tea from all over the world. I am looking at visiting a tea Planation/factory and would like the experience to pick my own, but am struggling to find anywhere that offers this. Can anyone advise as to where I can go to enable me to do all of this?

    • Travelling around hill country and to the south

      by Suzaina Online Now Nov 26, 2012 at 4:48 AM

      Hi hi,

      I am a backpacker heading to Sri Lanka in a week's time. What would be the recommended itinerary? I will be staying in Negombo before heading to kandy and then to the hill country. i would like to be able to go horton plains and adam's peak. How many days would be sufficient to go around the hill country and where else would be recommended to go?

      After the hill country, i would like to head down to the beaches in the south. i heard that mirissa and unawatuna should not be missed. how do i go about arriving at any of these destinations from the hill country? are there public transport available and how long would the journey take?

      Thank you.... : )

    • Church near Nuwara Eliya.

      by SLilaRamachandran Online Now Jun 17, 2005 at 4:41 AM

      This may seem like an unusual query. During my visit to Nuwara Eliya last year, I visited a small church in the hills. I am unable to recall its name. Its situated a little after St Clairs Tea Centre, on the opposite side of the hill. (Closer to Nanu Oya railway station) Can anyone tell me the name of this church? Its important, so please help!

    • Car & Driver from Hill Country to West Coast

      by familytime Online Now Nov 10, 2003 at 12:59 PM

      Our family of 4 will be visiting Sri Lanka next February. We are booked on a pkg holiday with stays in Kandy and Bentota, but would like to see a bit of the Hill Country area on our own. If we were to forfeit one nights hotel at the beach (or Kandy) and take the train to Nuwara Eliya from Kandy (staying in Nuwara Eliya one night), would it be possible to hire a car and driver to take us from Nuwara Eliya to World's End (wait for us while we hiked in and out), then drive us to Bentota to our hotel? How long would the drive take (not including waiting time)? Approx. how much would it/should it cost? Would we be better off doing this as an outing from Kandy and returning to Kandy? Any help greatly appreciated.
