Sri Lanka visit in February 2014, What to do?

My partner and I are planning a two week break in Sri Lanka in February 2014. We would like some advice on a split holiday. We would like to be based at one hotel and ideally like one week enjoying the beach and one week sightseeing.

Thanks

Hi there,

Kandy is probably the best base for sightseeing. It allows day trips to e.g. Cultural Triangle (like Sigiriya Rock) and Hills (e.g. Nuwara Eliya 'little England'). However a jeep safari won't be possible from there as these are dusk and dawn only and minimum 3 hours from Kandy (Habarana).

As for beach: any beach from Beruwala/Bentota onwards towards the southeast, and Kalpitiya in the northwest, will be great then.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Based in one place involve lots of travelling, better few days in Culture triangle and then down to Kandy for few days to cove that area before heading to beach stay, save money plus lots of travelling times.

Hi, thanks for your suggestion as lots of travelling is not what we need. Holiday times away from work is precious time!!!!

Many Thanks

We have just booked our Sri Lanka tour to go next month with Trailfinders, after lots of researching many companies they were by far the cheapest and best value ... can't wait !!!
