Kathie considers a return to Sri Lanka

Jump to last reply

We are debating about where to go this year. Our short list is
1. the Love Boat Cruise from HCMC to Siem Reap
2. A return to Burma, particularly to see Mrauk U.
3. An all-Thailand trip, with stops at places we haven't been like Sukothai and some of the Khmer temples in Thailand.
4. A return to Sri Lanka

If we return to Sri Lanka, here are the places currently on our list:
1. Anuradhapura (we didn't get to visit last time because of safety concerns)
2. Buduruwagala/Kataragama/Tissamaharma (for more Buddhist temples, stupas, ruins, and the archaeological Museum at Tissa.
3. Galle
4. Perhaps a return to Tea Trails or go to Columbo, as we didn't get there our first trip

One thing that has moved Sri Lanka up our list is the planned new airport at Bentota to be built by the Chinese in 2012. We'd like to get back to Sri Lanka before it opens.

I'd be interested in the thoughts of fellow Fodorites who have been to Sri Lanka.
