I am visiting Sri Lanka in early January and would prefer to travel to the North and East of the country, but have not finalised an itinerary or booked anything yet, so could still concencentrate in the south and west if weather was likely to be too wet. Has anyone uptodate info on how this year's Maha Monsoon is panning out?

Surfing/Diving in Sri Lanka

Hello,

My dream is to spend a month and a half in Sri Lanka surfing and diving and just living on the beach. Wondering where the best place to go for both of these is? Can I find both in the same spot?

Anuradhapurna vs. Polonnaruwa??

Currently in Sigiriya planning my next move. Original plan was to go to Anuradhapurna day after tomorrow but weather has been so bad locals are warning me not to go, it was pretty bad coming up from Negombo today!
Will going to Polonnaruwa in anyway make up for missing out on Anuradhapurna before I make my way south again, probably to Kandy??

Thanx!!
