I am travelling to Sri Lanka in February. Following is a gist of my itinerary -
28th Jan - Colombo
29th Jan - Kandy
31st Jan - Bentota
3rd Feb - Colombo.
Need some info on how i can get from one place to the other. Is it best to travel by car / bus or train? What's the approximate cost and time to travel? I would like to make all necessary arrangements before getting there so any links or contacts would be helpful.
If anyone has done this trip before and if you can share an itinerary it would be super awesome.
Tips on must-see and must-do places / activities are most welcome. Any other tips would be super helpful too.
Hiring a car to take you between all of your destinations would be the fastest, but it is truly unnecessary. One of the best ways to see Sri Lanka is by train and all three of the cities on your itinerary are connected via train.
The trains in Sri Lanka are very reasonably priced. Most tickets must be purchased locally at the train station, though. We spent over three weeks in Sri Lanka and traveled mostly via train and never bought our tickets more than 24 hours ahead of time and ran into zero issues.
If you are looking for more info, this website should have everything you could want.
Good luck and have fun,
