3 Weeks in Sri Lanka in March  (4 Answers)

We are going to Sri Lanka for 3 weeks in March, we were thinking... Negombo, Kandy, Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa.... then Ella, bandarawela, haputale, Yala National Park...then Tangalle, Mirissa & Galle and back to Colombo to flight.

In there I want to do lots of eating, visit tea plantations, take cooking classes, meet locals, go trekking in mountains, I want to take the train south from Kandy, visit temples, go to somewhere where there are spices (i.e., like a factory etc), eat fresh fish, maybe a coconut plantation, see wildlife.. and my partner is a surfer and would like to get some surfing in while we are going across the south coast, maybe a few days of me relaxing on a beach while he surfs.

Q1. Is this too much?
Q2. Do I book accommodation in each of the places in the itinerary or is it better to base yourself in the middle somewhere of each of the three stages of the trip and do day trips with a private driver? I.e., Kandy (to do dambulla, sigiriya, polonnaruwa).
Q3. Anything important I am missing from the itinerary. Should I add Horton Plains? Pinnewela?

Thank you so much, any advice appreciated.

Alicia

Colombo To Sigiriya and Back?  (7 Answers)

Hi can anyone advise me, how much I should expect to pay for a driver from Colombo to Sigiriya and back on the same day? Leaving at about 5am in the morning. I was told it is doable and was quoted, 13,500 Rupees. I was also quoted 5000 Rupees for a driver for a day by someone else but the Sigiriya trip may be considered a bit longer than a standard "day". How does the price sound? Too expensive or reasonable?

Thanks.

I am organizing a trip for my parents to Sri Lanka. I am wondering if it is reasonable to take them to Sigiriya. If they get tired and cant make it to the top, will there be things to see along the way which make it worthwhile?

I'm trying to find out what type of plug adaptor I will need for Sri Lanka. I've looked on the internet but have seen conflicting information. Some say Sri Lanka uses the same as England,(i know the voltage is the same) some say it's the same as the old style English plug and some say it's the same as they use in India. Does anyone know?

Accomodation in Sigiriya  (3 Answers)

Hello,

we are coming to Sigiriya around 22. July. Do you think we need to book accomodation in advance or can we count on some available rooms when we show up?

Is there some accomodation where we can book via internet or at least arrange booking by email? I haven't found anything yet.

We are looking for a budget accomodation and didn't find any hostels in Sigiriya. If there's anything in Dambulla of that kind it's fine with us, too.
