Hi there,

See top question for the public transport. I'd start Unawatuna (also visit Galle) - then Katagarama (hidden gem), Ella, Kandy and Habarana (also for Sigiriya). For beach choose between Arugam Bay (surf and party scene) and Trinco/Passi (for swim, snorkel, dive); all described at bottom of top question on seasons. In case of Arugam better start clockwise at Habarana, then Arugam and finally K'gama-U'tuna; in case of Passi/Trinco better to other way round and end at beach.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Ah..and it was just yesterday when you were asking the forum on how to book homestays. Today, you've discovered your friend's success with Duara Travels : )
