Trip Report On the Road in Beautiful Sri Lanka

Jump to last reply

This is our fourth trip to Asia. Our past travels to the continent took us to countries as varied as Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, and Taiwan, but never to South Asia.

Sri Lanka has been on our destination list for quite some time. We initially planned a visit to the island country back in 2013 but had to suddenly cancel our trip just weeks before our departure as a result of unexpected medical issues. Sri Lanka called to us with the number of Buddhist sites of significance found in the country as well as the tea-growing regions for which the island is famous.

We hired the services of a travel agency, Boutique Sri Lanka, back in 2013 upon the recommendations of several of you Fodorites and decided to work with them again for all our accommodations as well as our car and driver. We worked exclusively with Chamila and with Doris, both of whom have been nothing but helpful and attentive. They’ve responded quickly to my emails and worked with me to craft an itinerary that worked for my interests.

For our first trip to Sri Lanka, we would have 16 nights not including travel time. Our priorities were the Cultural Triangle and Tea Country, although we also wanted to see wildlife. With these in mind, we settled on the following itinerary:

2 nights in Colombo
4 nights in Dambulla
2 nights in Kandy
3 nights in Nuwara Eliya
2 nights in Ella
3 nights in Yala National Park

It’s the first time I’m attempting to write my trip report while our travel is still in progress. Please bear with me as I anticipate longer gaps of time between posts. It may also take me longer to respond, although I promise to do my best.

The trip unfortunately did not get off to a smooth start. More later…
