I am currently planning a 2 week tour of Sri Lanka. My girlfriend and I (both mid 20s) would like to travel around using trains and buses. We will have one backpack and one suticase (with wheels) with us. I would like to know how easy it will be to get on/off buses and trains.
I am more concerned about the buses. For example, how long do they stop for at each scheduled stop? Will we have to hold on to the luggage during the journey or are there storage compartments?
We will try and use trains where we can but for some of our planned route this will not be possible i.e. Ella to Tangalle.
Any insights would be gratefully appreciated!
