12 nights in Sri Lanka

Hi guys,

We’re off to Sri Lanka for 12 nights on the 24th Jan. We’ve booked all the hotels and our itinerary is:

1n in Negombo

3n in Sigiriya

1n in Kandy

2n in Nuwaria Eliya

2n in Yala

1n in Galle

1n in Sinharaja

1n in Colombo

We want to do the cultural aspect followed by the wildlife and safari towards the end of the holiday. Can anyone suggest some of the must see things? We’ve got a driver for the whole 12 nights, but as of yet not really decided on what and when we’re doing everything. Can anyone suggest things to see and visit and also the cost of entry to some of these places? Any ideas and suggestions would be most welcome.

Many thanks,

Daf

Hi Hans, many thanks for your reply and the prices. With regards to the Cultural Triangle, how many days would you need to do all of it? Also, are there any places that you'd recommend that are possibly off the beaten track and not the usual places to go?

Thank you,

Daf

You should be able to see most of CT in 2-3 days.

A bullock cart tour near Habarana is more or less off the beaten track, at least far less known and popular than the Cultural sights. Seems a nice halfday trip!

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Many thanks Hans, that's something we'll definitely look to do. Erik, that's a really good idea, thank you. We'll certainly look at doing this, very different and unique. Many thanks to you both for replying.
