Is Sri Lanka safe to Travel?

We are a little nervous about travelling to Sri Lanka next week. We fly in to Colombo, one night there, then to Galle for 5 nights and then to the Tea trails in the Tea country near Hatton?? Are these areas safe? I am pregnant and we have a 13 month old baby.

Thank you!!

All those mentioned areas are safe to travel. In addition its much convenient if can arrange a car because you are pregnant and have a baby of 13 months old too.

Absolutely safe. The trouble is in the north outside of the areas where most tourists want to go. I've been 4 times in the last year without any problems. Occassionally there'll be a checkpoint on the road where they just look at ID and wave you on.
