My husband and I are planning a trip to Sri Lanka for 12 days in August. We would like to see as much as possible. We’ve sketched out a rough itinerary, but I’d love feedback on how realistic it is, anything we can skip or should add. We’re in our early-40’s and are very active and fit.
Re transportation and lodging, I am thinking we’ll hire a car and driver for the duration, and book our own hotels.
Thank you in advance for any guidance!
