Sri Lanka Plan Query

Jump to last reply

I'm right now in Kandy and intend to cover the cultural triangle - Dambulla, Polonnaruwa, Sigriya and Anuradhapura - within the next two days.
1.What is the cheapest and yet convenient way to cover all this?

2.Is there any private bus plying this route which can get me there comfortably?

3.Private transport/tour operators are a bit on the expensive side. They're charging Rs.12,000 to cover this in 2 days and that also via a tuk tuk, and that is in addition to the accommodation, food and entrance charges I'll have to bear. Sigriya Lion Rock alone would cost me Rs.3,300 just for entrance. Is there anyone amongst you in Sri Lanka right now who wants to go to these places and share the transport cost?

4. Do you know of a private transporter that is far cheaper than this?

5. Where should I base myself/spend the night over?

6.Which is the most cost-effective but decent hotel/guesthouse to stay overnight?

Any help in this regard would be much appreciated.
