This forum has been so helpful in helping me plan our holiday to Sri Lanka in August.
We have provisionally booked the following itineray:
Day One: Colombo
Day Two: Sigiriya
Day Three: Dambulla /Kandy
Day Four: Nuwara Eliya / Pinnawela
Day Five:Yala Park
Days Six - Ten: Galle (Aditya resort hotel)
We wanted to see the key places as well as stay in a quiet, luxury hotel that suits couples.
The only concern I have is that many other agents have said that we should be looking at the East coast for the final stop as the South West beaches are 'out of season'. I understand that it may rain and that the sea is a little more choppy.
Can anyone advise as to whether it is unadvisable to go to the South West during August? The agent who offered the package suggests that it will be quieter at the Aditya than at the Eastern hotels.
Nothing is set in stone yet, so if anyone thinks we have some glaring issues with the plan, we are 'all-ears'!
Many thanks to you all!
