I am Planning to Visit Sri Lanka from the 1st to 6th Of November ( Ideally a 4 nights 5 Days trip) with my Family and Frens (10 people in all). Can you suggest some good places to visit which are authentic Srilankan? I already have Kandy, Colombo, Bentota, Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa in my mind for those 5 days. will it be too much to do in 5 days?
I don want the trip to be packed with too many things.
I also want to Visit Anaradhapura, But i get to know that it is about 8 Hours of drive from Colombo, Is Anuradhapura really worth packing it in my 5 days trip?
Which is the "Do Not Miss while in Srilanka" place of all these Places? Can i stay in Colombo and do a daily drive to all the places mentioned? is Colombo a better place to Stay or bentota considering the proximity to other places and cost?
Also, is Colombo a tourist city or just another metropolitan city like Bangalore?
Thanks in Advance for your Advice ;)
