We're heading to Sri Lanka for a week of our honeymoon before flying onto the Maldives in late September. As the Maldives will be a relaxing beach break we'd like to see a bit of Sri Lanka without feeling like we're rushing about too much! We'll be in Sri Lanka the last week of September and the 3 main things we're interested in are the whale watching trips around Mirissa, visiting a tea plantation and one of the national parks. As we've spent a bit more on the Maldives accommodation we're planning on splashing out a bit less on the Sri Lanka trip - does anyone have any advice around itinerary, modes of transport etc?
Thanks very much :)
