We have narrowed our itinerary down to stay on the 9th Aug at Ceylon Tea Trails (near Hatton). 2 questions:
1) We arrive on the 8th at 1000 but don't need be at Tea Trails until the 9th. Where is most feasible and interesting to stay over the night (Colombo, Negombo, Kandy, Tissa , K'gama, anywhere else) taking into consideration rush hour traffic on the 9th in the morning?
2) A driver we are talking with tells us that there has been rain in Hatton and therefore we can't get there. Find it hard to believe as the hotel is fully booked. Is this correct?
