Inquiry of visit plan  (4 Answers)

Hi there,
I'm visiting Sri Lanka in April 2016. My goal is visiting certain temples in Kandy and Anuradhapura and sightseeing if possible. I will arrive at BIA and spend three nights on the island before leaving it at BIA by noon on my last day.
So, I ask you to help me make my plan. PLEASE.

1. I will arrive at the Bandaraneiyake International Airport by 3 p.m.
Then, I would like to go on the trip to either Kandy or Anuradhapura and stay a night there.(Visiting a te,ple in the morning)

2. Next day to Anuradhapura or Kandy and spend a night there as well.

3. Lastly, it's heading to Colombo or Negombo for the last night before taking a noon flight from BIA.
I need your suggestion and more information about tranportation before booking hotels.
Thank you so much.
Bun

Colombo-Sigriya-Dambulla-Columbo possible in a days time?  (4 Answers)

Hey,

Is this kind of Round trip (Colombo-Sigriya-Dambulla-Columbo) possible in a days time?
We are really short of time in Colombo like for 4 days/3 nights. We plan to do 1 full day in North (covering sigriya/Dambulla), 2 days in South covering Hikkaduwa and Galle and one day in Colombo.

We are landing in Colombo around 5:30am, and plan to immediately head in direction of Sigiriya from airport. We plan to first halt at Dambulla, and then go to Sigriya rock climbing. Later in evening, we plan to head back for Colombo.

Is the evening/night travel advisable from Sigiriya to Colombo?

Further, we are going in end of September, so any of these location are impacted/closed during monsoons? Please advice.

TIA,
Prateek

Shore Excursion in Colombo  (5 Answers)

On a cruise that will be in Colombo for 1 day in June. Can anyone suggest a good tour suitable for 2 senior ladies. Found several Tour Operators offering different tours but I am unsure if they are all reliable. We were thinking of doing a city tour and found one that would pick us up from port, drive to city, then take us on a 4 hour Tuk Tuk sight seeing tour, then return us to port. We have been Tuk Tuks previously in Thailand and assume it would be similar. Is it safe in general and is it recommended to use operators from on line sites. Any help would be appreciated.

Hotel as a "day room"  (10 Answers)

I'll be departing Colombo at about 2am and was looking to get a hotel room for the afternoon/evening.

I'm staying in Bentota for a week and will just pass through Colombo on the way to the airport. I was after a fairly central location so I can arrive at about 3 or 4 and see the city briefly before leaving for the airport at midnight. The hotel would just be for storing bags and having a quick shower. The Shalimar is available for about $40AU which seems like a good option, but what is the location like?

Traveling with kids??  (5 Answers)

I am traveling with my wife, and two kids, ages 5, and 2. Would you recommend renting a car and self drive, or taking taxi to and from places? From what I read the buses seem to get overcrowded and the long buses only stop once maybe twice on trip. We have 1 med-large backpack, 1 suitcase, and 2 small backpacks with us. We just arrived in Colombo late last night, and have a month to explore Sri Lanka.
