Sri Lanka itinerary-please critic

Jump to last reply

Hi all,
We are thinking of going to Sri Lanka this Jan. I have come up with this itinerary and was wondering if those Fodorites knowlegeable about Sri Lanka would critique it and tell me if this is reasonable. We don't like a lot of down time, but have tried to respect Fodorite's advice aconcerning how slow travel is in SL.

Day 1-Arrive and overnight in Negombo
Day 2-Transfer to Anuradhapura (5 hrs drive). See Yapahuwa Rock Fortress on the way.
Day3-See ancient city of A-overnight in A
Day 4-Drive to Dambulla. Sightsee Ritigala and Aukana Buddah on the way
Day 5-See cave temple and ancient Polonnawara
Day6-Visit Sigirya Rock Fortress and proceed to Kandy. See Temple of the Tooth in the evening.
Day7-Visit the botanical gardens in the am for 3 hours and drive or take a train to Ella in the afternoon.
Day 8-Visit a tea factory and hike Little Adams Peak
Day 9-Sightsee Ella in the am and drive to Galle (5.5 hours drive)
Day 10-Spend the day at Galle Fort and drive to Negombo in the afternoon
Day 11-Fly home or to India. ( Probably home).

Any thoughts concerning pacing and/ or adding or subtracting sites would be appreciated.
