Proposed 3 week Sri Lanka itinerary - any recommendations welcome

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone

A friend and I are travelling to Sri Lanka for 3 weeks at the end of this year. I’ve been looking through all the great tips given on this forum and would love some feedback on our proposed itinerary for late Dec 2013 for 23 days.
Also, any suggestions for accommodation would be great (that’s reasonably priced - not into expensive hotels).

So far we’ve planned the following:

Dec 28th Depart Sydney Arrive Colombo very late
2 nights Negombo 28th/30th

Dec 30th Fly to Jaffna with Helitours
3 nights Jaffna 30th/31st/1st

2nd Jan bus to Anuradhapura
1 night Anuradhapura 2nd Jan
Want to pick up a driver here for the rest of the time we spend in the Cultural Triangle

3rd Jan drive to Dambulla
3 nights Dambulla 3rd/4th/5th
Hoping to do Dambulla, Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa

6th Jan drive to Kandy and finish with driver
2 nights Kandy 6th/7th
Do we need 2 nights in Kandy or is 1 enough?

8th Jan - train/bus?? to Tea Country
Looking at staying in Ella or Haputale. Interested in hiking
3 nights 8th/9th/10th

11th January Tea Country to Uda Walawe National Park
How long is this part of the journey?
What’s the best travel option - bus/driver???
2 nights NP 11th/12th
Unsure as to best options for accommodation here.

13th Uda Walawe National Park to Mirissa
Wondering how long this trip will take and best travel options

3 nights Mirissa 13th/14th/15th
Is this a good place for downtime - relaxing by the pool/sea?

16th Mirissa to Galle
2 nights Galle 16th/17th

18th to Colombo
Looking for the best way to do this leg of the journey, not the shortest but the most interesting

1 night Colombo 18th

19th Fly to Sydney

I have found very little information on Jaffna on travel forums. Would really appreciate some feedback on what is good to do there and if three nights is enough.

Thanks in advance

Sandra
