Sri Lanka - Does this seem right?

Jump to last reply

Hello,
I'm attempting to plan our next "big" trip. We thought Sri Lanka would make a good destination because we have almost 3 weeks - and feel like we could get a good sense of the country - and we have to travel late December/early January so the weather will be nice.

From reading the Forums on Fodors.. I see Boutique Sri Lanka comes up quite a bit. I inquired about an itinerary.. and what I got back seems like a good route - except I'm not sure about going to the wildlife sanctuary or see the elephants if they're not being treated well?

My questions are as follows...

1) Does anyone have input on the itinerary??

Arrival transfer to West Country -- 1 night

3 nights - Cultural Triangle (approx.. 3 ½ hour drive)

2 nights Kandy

2 Nights Hill country - Nuwara Eliya

2 nights - Ella

1 night - Yala
4 nights - South coast, Turtle bay

2 nights Galle

Question #2
We were quoted anywhere from $150-$300 USD a night for accommodations. They were very nice... but I wasn't expecting to spend that much? Is that normal? Or can you find perfectly fine accommodations for far less? We're also Canadian..so that adds 20% to the price automatically

Question #3
They also didn't tell us how much it would be for a car & driver.. it seemed like they wanted us to book the itinerary first.. but I need to know an approximate cost on that before we can book. Does anyone know an average of how much that would be?

I think that's all for now.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations. I've always found those on Fodors of great assistance when planning more extensive trips.
