      "HELP" Will have to go to from Trinco to Ella (in one day) - August 2016

      Trincomalee Jul 22, 2016 at 8:51 AM

      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.

      Fresh veggies and fruits?!

      Sri Lanka Jul 11, 2016 at 4:44 AM

      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?

      Thx...

    • Climbing Sigiriya

      Sri Lanka Jun 28, 2016 at 10:32 PM

      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.

      Thank you?

      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.

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.
