Advice needed for Colombo and Bendota

Jump to last reply

Greetings Fodorites! We have just booked a last minute trip to Sri Lanka. We will be spending 2 nights in Colombo and 2 days in Bendota. We leave Jan 23.

Have you been to either place? Do you have suggestions for places to eat and people watch and how to get around? We fly into to the airport at 10:20 PM so we were going to hire a taxi to the Taj Samudra where we are staying. Then we wanted to figure out an affordable way to get from Colombo to Bendota and then from Bendota back to the Bandaranaike airport.

We are in our 30s and are taking our first trip as new parents (leaving our tern month old with the folks). We plan to hang out at the beach in Bendota and do some people watching in Colombo and enjoy our first time alone as a couple since the baby was born. It is a bit of a pricey trip for us so we are looking to save where we can, having splurged a bit to stay in a Taj hotel.

I apologize in advance that I do not have time to do a search of the forum as I am staying with my folks in Mysore and have very limited access to the internet. So please don't lecture me. Please respond only if you have something constructive to say. We went to the bookstores around my parents' house and could only find the Lonely Planet (published in 2009) and figured it would be a waste to buy it for the exorbitant price they are charging. I was hoping to check back here on Sunday and Monday to see what you folks have to say.

I promise to do a trip report as a thank you (initially we had hoped to go to the Maldives but chose Sri Lanka instead). Happy 2012!
