Suggestions for 1st Timers

Please can all you seasoned travellers help. 4 adults doing the Golden Triangle Trip in November then hoping to fly on from Delhi to Colombo for a relaxing week. Can anyone suggest a good beach resort and how long would the journey from the airport take.

Hi,

You may travel straight to Hambantota, Mattala airport soon, I am working on that project, this will be a great help for the tourists who lovw the beach coastal areas down south of Sri Lanka, you can travel within an hour to Hikkaduwa Unawatuna Tangalle.

November is in the 2nd inter monsoon season with quite unsettled weather.

You may experience 3 types of days:

- Fully clouded with the odd shower, light or heavy

- 3-4 hours sunshine after 8 am and clouds building up in the afternoon with hefty thundershowers late afternoon, evening and night

- sun-clouds-rain-sun again and so on with the sunny spells lasting at least an hour and minimum 4 hours per day.
