Srilanka vacation 7 days/6 nights

Jump to last reply

My wife and I plan to visit Srilanka in September/October this year on our first wedding anniversary. We are budget minded travelers looking for an optimal mix of fun and spend.

Our plan is to fly into Colombo and travel by local transport (train/bus- find cab a bit expensive ). Things we want to cover during our 6 nights/7 days stay are, beaches, Cultural triangle, Galle and Colombo city. Please help us refine this itinerary of ours.

From the airport :

Day 1 & 2 – Visit the cultural triangle ( Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla ), by train or bus- need suggestions on mode of transport and accommodation.

Is this possible in two days? . Dambulla and Sigiriya are places that we want to make it to. need suggestions on the others

Day 3 - back to Colombo..City tour... (need suggestions for place of stay.. been told Colombo is expensive)

Day 4 - Train to Unawatuna (3 hrs)

Day 5 - Visit Galle and move train to Bentota

Day 6 - Bentota -(is there option to do snorkelling)?

Day 7 - Bentota to airport . ( is Negombo a better option as it is close to the airport)


We would also like to do white water rafting. How can we accommodate this in our itinerary.

Please suggest place of stay and things to check out in various destinations to make our first overseas trip a memorable one.

Thanks
Utter!
