We're considering a holiday to Sri Lanka next year, but with so many different resorts I don't know where to start. The problem is that I like the beach, swimming & snorkelling, but my husband doesn't - he likes walking, nature & bird watching. We both like soaking up local cultures, eating out, having a drink in local bars, and travelling independently. We're not keen on all inclusive resorts, or isolated hotels, and we don't like being organised by others, we like to do our own thing & are quite happy getting around on local transport. We would particularly like to see some elephants. We don't want to stay in different places as it's too much trouble to keep packing & unpacking, so want to stay in on place. Has anyone got any suggestions on a resort that might suit us both?
