Only 4 or 5 days in Sri Lanka: What two areas would you go to

Jump to last reply

Regretfully my husband and I only have a total of 4-5 days to spend in Sri Lanka on our way to Cape Town from Australia. We have just decided to try to get to this special place instead of going straight to Cape Town so haven't had much time to research so any help would be much appreciated.
Please share thoughts on exactly which two areas (we're thinking maybe Galle or beachy and a tea plantation). Because this will be from Dec 19-24 or 25 and we know it's a busy time to get reservations recommendations for places to stay would also be greatly appreciated. Want to spend two nights in each place so we can relax and not spend too much time moving......but my husband might want to climb Adams Peak!
Would like to stay in B and B type places versus hotels and can spend about$150-200/night
Should we get a driver, or could we take a train between places?
Thanks in advance for specific recommendations and should we book these places through BSL or can we book it ourselves? If we're going to try to do two places should we still get a local tour operator to get the most out of our time? Thanks!
