I am planning our trip to Sri Lanka for the end of November 2014 for roughly 2 weeks and would be really grateful if you experts could provide us with some advice.
We shall be travelling from Manchester to Colombo and are pretty flexible. We want the trip to contain the main sight seeing elements and definitley a visit to the elephant orfanage and at least a 5 night stay at a nice beach resort.
From my inital research there seem to be many different beach resorts, if we were to incorporate two different resorts which would be the best to go to? We are young (early 20's) and enjoy good food with something going on at night time, although we wouldnt mind a few nights of pure relaxation somewhere quiet.
Also, can any one give me a rough idea of prices for food & drink ect.
Is it also easy to travel around? Sorry if these seem like silly questions, however this is my first time planning a trip of this kind.
If anyone has planned anything similar and could give me a suggested itinerary I would be extremely grateful.
Thank you in advance.
