We had to change our holiday plans at the last minute and we were delighted to find Destination Sri Lanka.
We used Destination Sri Lanka for 11 days to visit key landmarks across the country and they were fantastic! We booked online before leaving home. Their communication was very responsive, helpful and very flexible on their offer to meet our expectations. Also we found their offer very competitive.They confirmed our tours the day before also. Their guides and drivers were very friendly and…

Please use extreme caution on purchasing "rubies" in Sri Lanka. I went to two different nice stores one next to a beautiful Eco Lodge and another around the island. Guarantees were given to me from the store and the Government, came home and needed an alteration in the earrings, 3 carat rubies, guess what.....fake all the way through, also the ring.

We're going to be staying in Ella. We want to do the Yala safari one day. Will we be able to find a driver to take us from Ella to Yala, do the safari, and then find a driver from Ella to Galle?
Will the timing be ok or is this too much to fit in one day?
Any guesses on cost would be appreciated. Thanks!
Read that the Hindu Pongal activities are held from january 13th till 16th, with Tamil Thai Pongal as main date on january 14th. Is is possible to see/visit these activities? If yes, would in/around Jaffna be the best area to watch (I was thinking about going there anyway) or are other places better? Other recommendations about this event?
Thanks answering in advance,
After my 8 days travelling in November I have some days spare. I'm considering just chilling and booking a nice hotel. I finish up my travels in Colombo so somewhere east/ south coast. However possibly in an area I can do day trip etc. I will have been to Galle during my 8 days travels but would be open to that area again.
I'm considering areas of Unawatuna, Bentota and Arugam Bay?
