I am backpacking in Sri Lanka in a few weeks time at the end of a 7 month trip. I need a little advice on what is possible with the itinerary i have come up with as have hard that travelling between places can be rather long. I was thinking to have a couple of nights in Negombo on arrival rather than Colombo then on to Kandy, Eliya, Ella, Unawatuna, Galle and back to the airport. Not sure really how long to spend in each place but time constraints means I will only get 2/3 days anyhow. Am I trying to fit way too much in? I wanted to see some of the hill country as well as beach life. Also any suggestions on good guesthouses between $10-$20 per night would be great. I am a single female traveller so hoping also for advice on safety travelling here by myself as a bit nervous! Many thanks!
