Hi

We are heading for Hikkaduwa for 19 days over Christmas and New Year.

We would like to go to a few parks in the area, Udawalawe park, Whale watching, go to kandy for a couple of days maybe to Yala national park

any recommendations or other ideas would be welcome

This will be our first visit to Sri Lanka and really looking forward to it

Regards

C&C

Hi Colin,

This could be a start...

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c122197/Sri-L…

As noted there, UW and Yala are not suitable as a daytrip.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Kandy is hardly feasible as a day trip from Hikkaduwa.
