My name is Sagar Chitale, from Mumbai, India.
I am planning to go for a Honeymoon to Sri Lanka in Jan 2015 for say 9 Nights/10 Days.
Now after digging deep into all the forums, and Lonely Planet and what not I guess I have got some idea what do I want to do...I really need an opinion from you all about my Itinerary.
Now ideally I would like to spend my 10 days with a bit of north and bit of south.. So this is how it goes.
Day1: From airport I go to Dambulla. Keep Dambulla as my base may be for 2 days
Day2: Will visit to Sigirya and Polonnaruwa as a day trip
Day3: Will travel to Kandy and will stay there overnight
Day4: Sightseeing in Kandy
Day5: Travel to Nuwara Eliya stay there overnight
Day6: travel to Horton Plains national park the same day depart for Galle/Mirassa/Unawatua( this is where my confusion is.like all three are pretty much close to each other so wondering which place to keep as a base?
Day7/8 enjoy the beaches
Day9 travel to Colombo/Negombo
Day10: travel back to Mumbai.
Now does this really sound bit cramped up? and of course keeping in mind the distances and the time it might take, will we be rushed into things?
Now I believe this itinerary will involve a lot of travelling so what am I looking here? like in reference to the travelling expenses?
Well other plan which I was making just 7 nights/8days trip only to south and enjoy the beaches.
As simple as Negombo--Hikkaduwa--Galle--Unnawatuna--Mirissa
this sounds kind of a hassle free trip.. I would really appreciate if I can get good comments and alterations in the plan if necessary.
