More time in India or trip to Sri Lanka ?

I am doing my 3rd trip to India - this time with some friends. Been to Goa, Kerala, Cochin, Pudacherry, Bangalore, Hampi before. I have 15 days after the trip with my friends. Should I spend it in India or perhaps take a trip to Sri Lanka ?

We loved Sri Lanka, and since you've been to India before you might find it an interesting contrast. My trip report is old now, but it covers the world heritage sights well: http://www.fodors.com/community/asia...-sri-lanka.cfm

Also, photos are at www.marlandc.com

Hi Abrie,

I've never been to India, and only been to Sri Lanka once, but IMO you could see a lot [not all] of Sri lanka in 15 days [which is how long we had for our wonderful holiday there last year]

if you click on the website of Boutique Sri Lanka [http://www.boutiquesrilanka.com/] it will give you a lot of ideas of what there is to do and how to plan a trip. [and/or you could click on my screen name and see what we did on our trip]

definitely a great place to go with loads to see and do, friendly people and terrific food.

ok Abrie, good idea.

but do feel free to come back with your queries however daft you feel they are - they can't be any more stupid than the ones I started off with!
