Cancelled Bangladesh, Need New Plan Asap. What about Sri Lanka....?

Jump to last reply

When the hotel started talking about taking armed guards to the airport and an indefinite general strike was called we bowed out! So here we are at the Sofitel in Abu Dhabi working on Plan B, we've opted for a second night here and plan to go somewhere tomorrow. I'm looking at Sri Lanka as I can get a visa at the airport and there is a cheap flight available.

Given that we've paid for Bangladesh we aren't looking for very expensive high end suggestions, so no Tea Trails unfortunately. We will have 13 nights with at least one night in Colombo on the way in, so where would you suggest we go? In terms of travel would anyone recommend the train? My brother in law has recommended a taxi driver who we are contacting.

I looked at traveling to Sri Lanka ages ago but remember very little about it, Galle is certainly a possibility and perhaps some of the UNESCO sites around Anuradhapura which appeals to my husband. Do let us know what/where you would suggest?

As you can imagine time is of the essence!
