I am travelling to Sri Lanka from 12-28 September. I will be travelling by myself, so would appreciate your advice on a few things
1. My proposed intinerary
2. Anything I need to be conscious of as a youngish (29) female travelling alone
3. Any good accom/sight seeing tips.
This is a loose idea of what I'm thinking..
Get into Colombo at 1.30pm in the afternoon of 12th. I was planning on getting a driver and heading to Nuwara Elia. Spend 2 nights there checking out the tea plantations.
14th catch train to kandy - stay one night there (happy to hear accom suggestions)
15th Get a driver from Kandy to cultural triangle - thinking will stay in sigiriya or habarana (open to suggestions for accom!) and stay for 3 nights
I want to make my way down south - want to stay in ella (unsure what best way to do this is without losing to much time travelling?)
From 20th - stay in tangalle for a night or 2 (ganesh garden cabanas have been recommended)
I'd like to stay a couple of days at the yoga retreat in Tallala
And then finish things off in Galle before I head home on 28th.
I would also like to see Sinharaja Forest Reserve. Do you think I should prioritise this?
Thank you for your help in advance!!
