Cultural Triangle (Anuradapura, Pollonnaruwa, Sigiriya Rock). You can base in one place. This will take upto 3-4 days. Based on the days you allocate, you can decide which places you will visit.

Kandy (Temple of the tooth, elephant orphanage, botanical gardens)

Kitulgala (rafting)

Ohiya, Haputale or Ella. All our hill country destinations. Good base for views, tea plantation, waterfalls.

Specific to Ohiya – Horton plains national park/Worlds End

Specifc to Haputale – Lipton seat

Specific to Ella – Small Adams peak, Ella rock

Yala national park or Udawalawe national park (for wild life)

Beach destination (east coast is off-season in December) - Mirissa, Unawatuna, Hikkaduwa, Bentota or even Kalpitiya.

Specific to Mirissa or Kalpitiya – Whale watching

Specific to Galle (Fort area) – Galle is close to popular Unawatuna beach area

Hikkaduwa – Glass boat ride

Hi there,

See

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c148004/Sri-L…

for accomodation. Sites like bookingcom are great as benchmarks for fair prices but not necessarily for booking, as in many of your tour stops you want halfboard which they cannot book while a Lankan package operator or freelance driver can book.

Car/driver: from Lankan package operator or a freelance, search the forum for recommendations or contact regular posters like DE's for that.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Comm based advice. I would like to see you decide on what ever agent.

Pls do try to give the business to a small / new agent. Give the income to a Sri Lankan.

Thank you, and wish you a great journey through Sri Lanka.

STOP it, Don! Now you did same link as yesterday, a TA article full of selfpromotion, hence this means you are clearly into selfpromotion yourself. Reported and should soon be removed.

All the best,

Forget the link. Most drivers on it now have added themselves. That's hardly a recommendation.
