5 days trip to Sri Lanka

Hello everyone,

We are planning a 5 days trip to Sri Lanka, the first week of June, our initial idea was to, once we landed Colombo, go to Hikkaduwa, then Galle and roam around, what do you guys think?

Any suggestions? Should we go to another place instead? What can we do in Hikkaduwa?

Thank you all.

Hi there,

Well it's not great beach weather then (1/3 spoilt days, 2/3 with 4+ hours of sunshine next to overcast/shower periods) and you don't enjoy much of the Lankan sights from any beach place. Hence maybe kandy for at least half of the time is better?

Hi there.

You have enough 5 days to visit more places instead galke and hikkaduwa.now a days galle and hikkaduwa is not that much to visit due to rainy season.

Are you beach lover,nature lover,cultural or historical lover? According to that you are advisable to get well and workable itinerary.

Just look below one.
