Need to know a few must do in Colombo

HI! we are planning a trip to Colombo this New Year...looking at a 7 day trip to make the most of the city. there are few things we would definitely be interested in doing.. like

1. Snorkeling - is Hikkaduwa south the best place? would the weather/sea conditions be apt?

2. Sky Diving - any suggestion on an agent? weather conditions?

3. Wildlife - any reccomendations on which reserve to visit?

4. any other must visit/must do things we have to cover while our stay??

Would really appreciate any views.

Hi there,

Well Colombo is only the capital and airport, nothing to do there except transit and shopping.

1. Yes, Hikka should be fine then. Kalpitiya, less developed, too.

2. Weather should be fine. Mostly done inland (e.g. Dambulla area from balloon and nearby A'pura and Ampara airports from plane). Underdeveloped in Lanka hence does need quite some researching and probably high prices (solo-hire of the balloon or plane).

3. Minneriya if you combine with Dambulla, or Yala if you do as 2-day trip from Hikka.

These three already easily fill a week...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
