Sri Lanka Itinerary - Feedback appreciated

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are planning a short trip to Sri Lanka in Dec - probably the Christmas-New Year week. We'll be in India and wanted to fly over to Sri Lanka for a few days.

We are thinking of 7-8 days. The possible itinerary is this:

3 days in Nuwara Eliya, 3 days in Galle and 2 days in Colombo.

Hotel recommendations - we were thinking of the following. Can you give your recommendations?

1) Colombo - Colombo Hilton vs Taj Samudra

2) Nuwara Elia - Tea Factory vs Grand Hotel

3) Galle - Jetwings Lighthouse (we don't know any other places). I heard about the Weligama Bay Resort - is that close by?

Finally - can you please recommend a good local travel agency in Sri Lanka.

Also, do you have any recommendations for an agency that will supply a good A/C car and driver (who should be able to speak some English or can at least understand English) who will be with us while we are travelling?

Thanks to all for your feedback!
