Ideas for 13 night itinerary

Hi, we have made a spontaneous decision to visit Sri Lanka at the end of March for 13 nights with our 8 yr old daughter. In my haste to research I have become quite overwhelmed at just how much there is to do. Any ideas for an itinerary that will suit travelling with our daughter? We don't really want to travel the whole time with a guide.

Thanks

I suggest you spend a couple of nights in Cultural Triangle (Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa, Minneriya National Park) and a couple of nights in Kandy (Tooth Temple, Botanical Gardens) and the rest in a beach resort, e.g. Beruwala/Bentota, Hikkaduwa or Unawatuna.

Hi Hans, great, thank you for your reply. Is it possible to visit Dambulla, Sigirya, Polonnaruwa etc on day trips from the same hotel in the Cultural Triangle or would we need to move around with each one? Can you recommend any hotels? Also we love a good beach with restaurants & bars, somewhere between all night raving and us being the only ones, which beach do you recommend? Thanks so much...
