Me, my husband and our two daughters 18 and 13 years, are visiting Sri Lanka from 30. Oct to 9 nov. We stay 10 nights and I made my own itinerary, I just want some suggestions if it is O.K. or do we have to change something.
We are arriving to Colombo airport on 30.oct at 04.55 am and want to go straith to Anuradhapura by train – to save time we’ve planned to go to Gampaha station and try to catch the train at 06.20 am (maybe too optimistic?), or wait the next one at 01.50 pm. (arriving in the evening)
30.10. – 01.11. 2 Nights in Anuradhapura (see the ancient city, Mihintale)
On 01.11. Bus to Dambulla stay 2 nights – see Dambulla Rock Temple, Sigiriya, what else?
03.11. Bus from Dambulla to Kandy (1 night) – city tour, dance show, tea factory museum
04.11. train to Nouwara Eliya, stay 2 nights, see one of the tea plantations (suggestions), Horton Plains? maybe do the water rafting?
06.11. taxi from Nouwara Eliya to Katagarama, passing Ella and Rawana falls, 1 night in Katagarama to see the evening puja, we are not going to do the safari, we’ve been to Kenya on a safari.
07.11. – 9.11. Mirissa 2 nights on the coast – suggestions what to do in case of bad weather
09.11. in the afternoon train Galle to Colombo Fort and then taxi to the airport – we have an evening flight at 09:55pm. What time should we leave Galle to come on time to the airport?
Girls also want to ride an elephant – where is this possible, except from the Orphanage we are not going to visit, because it’s too touristy.
