      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!

      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?

      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.
