A friend and I (both females aged 25) are going to Sri Lanka in 10 days time. We havent really planned an itinerary and are planning to just get there are go with the flow. We will be there for around 10 days. I have a few questions:
1. Having read a lot of posts on here it sounds like most people arraneg a tour with a driver. Is it "doable" to just travel around on public transport?
2. Can somebody advise on how to get to kitulgala from Kandy?
3. We would like to do some snorkelling if possible but it seems from what people have said that you can only do that on the East coast at this time of year. Is that true or is there anywhere on the South coast? Just think it might take a long time to get across to East.
Places we want to visit are Kandy, Kitulgala, Ella, Galle, Sinharaja National Park and somewhere with a nice beack to swim/snorkel.
Is it realistic that we will be able to do this on public transport and arrange it as we go??
