colombo-hikka-kandy

I'd really need your help on this!

we booked our vacantion for Sri Lanka and we said that NYE to be spent on the beach. That's why we choose Hikka for our first 7 days.

Then we have Kandy for the cultural triangle, 4 days and then beach on the South Mirissa 5 days. finally get back to Colombo.

But now I have doubts on the distances, as it seems that everibody is doing Colombo - Kandy and then the beach.

thanks a lot

Hi there,

Well Hikka-Kandy is 5.5 hours and Kandy-Mirissa is 7 hours by road. But it's your planning...

All the best,

Do it on the other way, Colombo Kandy Mirissa Hikkaduwa Colombo. So you have the longest distance on the beginning. Also better for acclimatise is Kandy 400 m.a.s.l.

From Hikka to airport you will need only 3 h in the night or 3,5-4h on the day. Maybe the highway is open on 27.Nov. it will be go faster to airport. Taxi to airport about 8000Rs
