We will spend 5 or 6 days in SL, and 5 days at Maldives.
We are a bit confused with the trip plans.
Here is our itinerary so far:
Day0: Our flights arrive at 8 pm on september 29 so we will spend the night in Colombo.
Day1: DAMBULLA, (we stay 2 nights at Heritance Kandalama)
Day2: SIGIRIYA then POLONNAWURA
Day3: KANDY and PINNAWELA elephant orphanage, Tooth temple, Stay the night in Kandy
Day4: NUWARA ELIYA, we would like to go by train from Kandy. Visit tea plentations. Stay in NE.
Day6: Beach, we were planning Hikkaduwa, but afraid that is too far. or considering to leave for Maldives a day earlier,
We are also interested in jeep safari at Mineriya National Park but don't know where to fit.
We would like to hire car with driver day by day, maybe from the hotels we stay.
We are open to any advice.
