Hi Peter

It depends what interests you most. If you are keen on culture, the Cultural Triangle north of Kandy is definitely worth a couple of nights at least (although I would have done that first, and then travelled south to Kandy and again south from there to save doubling back on the same road twice.) There are numerous sites of interest here, such as Sigiriya Rock, the ancient cities, Dambulla caves etc.

If you prefer mountains, you should head south of Kandy to the higher hill country with its open views, waterfalls and tea plantations. You can do this journey by train if you don't have a driver with you throughout. If you like walking, head to the village of Ella, where there's lots of guesthouse accommodation and good walks, or alternatively, if you like a bit of a challenge, go to the tiny village of Dalhousie to do the night time ascent of the sacred mountain Sri Pada, also known as Adam's Peak. There's good walking all around this area. Haputale is another good bet for walkers and is situated at an even higher altitude.

From the hillcountry, you could head south again towards the south coast as per your original plan. The small resorts of Tangalle, Mirissa and Unawatuna are popular choices. If you want to limit your travelling, head from the hillcountry to one of the west coast beaches instead.

If you have any other specific interest, such as wildlife for instance, let us know because there are many other things you could see and do on the way, depending on how long you've got and your method of travelling about.

All the best

Hi Sue

Thanks for your quicky reply!

Wrote much more ; but was logged ut when I had to find the Lonely Planet book by Brett Atkinson etc

We are 2 adults and 2 children Sara 12 and Marcus 5 years travelling for the first time to SL the 11th arriving the 12th at 04:30! First night to Mt.Lavinia ouside Colombo - next day we are travelling the observation car 1st class to Kandy and stay at the Villa Rosa for 3 nights http://www.villarosa-kandy.com/en/home.html and we have then 4 nights available somewhere in the hill or mountainside untill the 19th where I have booked the the Beach House at Hikkaduwa http://www.srilankabeachhouse.com/house.html

for 7 days. From there we have booked Unawatuna for 4 nightsThaprohan Beach House www.thambapannileasure.com and we end at the same place where we started Mt.Lavinia www.mountlaviniahotel.com.

As you can imagine our children would like to stay at where there is a pool so somewhere in the mountains near Kandy would be nice . We were thinking of Habarana; but you pics from Sigiriya and Ella looks stunning.

Your pictures are great by the way and you seem to be a real expert on Sri Lanka

Hoping to hear from you what you think and thank..

Kind regards

Thank you Peter! I am guessing you must have seen the photos I have of Sri Lanka on flickr?

Somewhere with a pool in the mountains near Kandy ... that immediately makes me think of the Hunas Falls Hotel which is about an hour's drive NE of Kandy. Lovely place and in a stunning setting with lots of good mountain walks from the hotel. It's not that far from the Cultural Triangle area either, so you could have a couple of nights at each. The pool is unheated and, being in the mountains, the water is pretty cold, but it didn't put us off having a swim and children are never bothered by cold water, are they?!

Habarana is right in the middle of the Cultural Triangle so is an ideal base for you if you want a few days in this area. It's a lowland area ... definitely no mountains there. Sigiriya is close by and either place would be a good base for any exploration you might want to do in the area. As well as being rich in cultural sites, it is a good area for wildlife and also ideal if your children want to ride on an elephant or would like to see wild herds at one of the national parks of the area.

You also mention Ella but of course this is in the completely opposite direction to Habarana or Sigiriya, ie SOUTH of Kandy. It would be an ideal hillcountry stopover for you inbetween Kandy and the beaches.

Hope this helps.

Enjoy your holiday!
