I just booked a flight together with my gf to Sri Lanka in september. The idea is to do a 16 day roundtrip to visit the island. No itinery has been fixed yet but this will be more ore less similar to what can be found throughout the internet.
However, I was wondering how to travel around easy and cheap without taking busses (apparently close to suicide). Some suggest to have a car with driver but i'm wondering if this is not too expensive and a risk for privacy? Is it also possible and good to rent a car for both of us and drive around? What about taking taxis from city to city?
Thanks for helping us out on this.
