Could you please comment and offer advice on our (young at heart middle-aged couple)planned itinerary in Sri Lanka. We will arrive in Colombo on 30th October but are quite flexible with return dates and can add a night here or there if necessary. We don’t mind long drives and changing hotels often. We are interested in scenery, history, wildlife, good food, un-crowded beaches .
We will leave for our itinerary after 5 nights in Colombo.
Day 1 - Train to Kandy (have heard there is a special 1st class carriage with amazing windows). Stay at either Richmond House, Manor House or Queen’s Hotel - 2 nights. Rent a car. Is driver highly recommended?
Day 2 - Visit Matale return to Kandy.
Day 3 - Visit Peradenyia botanical garden, drive to Nuwara Eliya overnight Grand Hotel / St Andrew’s Hotel?
Day 4 – Horton Plains National Park– World’s End - overnight either in Bandarawela or Ella. Is this do-able or do we need another night close to the park?
Day 5 – Drive to Yala National Park stay in tented safari camp 1 night/2 days
Day 6 – Drive to Tangalle – Buckingham Place Hotel? 2-3 nights
Drive to Galle – 1 night in town
+ 2 more nights in another beach location preferably N of Galle . Suggestions please.
Fly back home from Colombo
Thanks!
