      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.

      Needed some advice on hotels
      Has anyone stayed in the Kala bongo lake resort or the oasis villa in Hikkaduwa??? They are both around 70 dollars for the night ( including breakfast) . If not, can someone recommend me another hotel around the same budget??

      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!

      Is the sea shallow enough for a 2 year old (going in Feb.)?

      by Masha_M Online Now Oct 17, 2013 at 11:56 PM

      Hi there, what would be the best beach to stay on with a two year old in Februray? We're "old backpackers" and prefer to avoid package tour masses and resort type of places. We'll also be travelling on a budget seeking some relaxed vibe and yoga classes if possible. Thanks for all your answers.

      Safe swimming in Tangalla area

      by LostinParadiseTR Online Now Feb 8, 2010 at 5:09 AM

      I've seen a few comments on this website that the sea has dangerous currents near Tangalla. I'd love to stay in that area, as there seem to be more sights to see nearby, but definitely want to spend several days swimming and relaxing too. My guidebook lists the Palm Paradise Cabanas as having 'safe swimming nearby' and the Mangrove Garden as having 'safe swimming in a natural rock pool', also the Lagoon Paradise Resort as being on a lagoon (which I assume means safe swimming but I could be wrong). Has anyone stayed in any of these places? Or anywhere else in Tangalla with safe swimming? I'm not a strong person ...but I love swimming.

    • Turtles

      by yrag1960 Online Now Jun 15, 2008 at 5:02 PM

      I am travelling to Tangalle in August and wondered if any of the turtles will be around at that time of year.
      I am aware of the 'sanctuaries' but would love to see them naturally if we can.
