My girlfriend and I will be in Sri Lanka for a week in November. We land and fly out of Colombo airport. We were hoping to see Sigiriya, Kandy, and Galle, but we are having trouble find the best route to take and which transportation to take. It would extremely helpful if anyone knew the answers to those questions.
Hi guys, I just returned from a trip to Sri Lanka two weeks ago (in September) and just thought I'd share about my experience and perhaps some useful information. My friend and I covered the following places during our 8-day trip: Udawalawe, Ella, Nuwara Eliya, Yala, Galle, Bentota and Colombo. We love nature and animals so our trip mainly revolved around these. My only gripe is that our trip to Yala National Park was in vain because we did not manage to see much, save for some deers and…
Hi, we left Sri Lanka with still 9K and some rupees in our pockets.
We are now in northern Vietnam, heading to China in a week or two. We've tried to exchange it in many different places throughout Asia but it seems no one will take it. Any idea what to do?
I will be backpacking around the entire country and was wondering if anyone had a great driver/car for hire for about two weeks over Christmas they can recommend?
My boyfriend and I are travelling to Sri Lanka in January. We are planning the first half of our trip. Can someone please help me - does this look sensible so far?

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. My friend also purchased and fake on hers as well. Please unless you know what you are buying do NOT trust any jeweler in Sri Lanka. Shopping…
