I am going to Sri Lanka soon and have to travel quite a bit. I am trying to figure out the best and quickest routes to save on time. From Galle, I need to drive to Anuradhapura but am afraid it will be too grueling of a trip. If it is best to spend the night somewhere where should I spend it? Please take in consideration that after our 1 week in Anuradhapura we will be spending time in Kandy and Nuwara Eliya and I prefer not to go there twice.
1) From Galle, I need to drive to Anuradhapura. Is it feasible to do in one day? If so, do we drive inland or do we drive back up to Colombo and go from there? How long is the drive approximatly?
2) If we stay in Colombo, how long is the drive from Galle to Colombo and then Colombo to anuradhapura?
Thanks so much in advance.
