Pease help me if I can...
I'm planning a trip end of this month for 2 of us, have booked flights, now just need to take care of the rest of it,
I have a rough itinerary with scope for moving it to work best.
Day 1. Arrive midday. Is it best to stay in Colombo a night and then get train to kandy or is it best to get bus or a driver straight to kandy, is Colombo worth a visit?
Day 2/3/4... Would like to see pinwella, sigiriya rock, dambulla caves, temple of sacred tooth, is minneriya worth a visit? How much time should I allow for all of this.... And anywhere else I should visit In the area. Am thinking hiring a driver for these few days is the best idea for sure?
Day 5/6/7 head to batticola/ trincomalee (any opinion which is best for sunbathing and relaxing, sea swimming and snorkeling) and relax for a couple of days, iunderstand the weather is better on the east coast in July, have I got this right,
Day 8/9/10- is safari worth it in Sri Lanka, have heard yala is best national park to go.. Any opinions on yala or better places to go, do you see much big wildlife on safari. Not really interested on birds,
Then need to head back to airport to catch flight on 10th day? Any idea on a good route back?
this Is all ideas , please feel free to comment and help me, would be appreciated. Is there anything else is a must see in Sri Lanka. Maybe turtles? Is there things on my list you don't reccomend...
Thanking you in advance
