Also I am planning to stay in Amaya Hills

Looking for your advise.

Hi Devjith,

All fit easily, except maybe Dambulla which is 2 x 2 hours travel. But it'll depend a bit on how much time you want to spend at the family's houses also...

All the best,

I have a small change in flight schedule. revised schedule is follows:

Arrival : 02 Jan 11:00

Dep : 04 Jan 18:50

So I planning to have an itenary as:

02 Jan [Airport - Kandy) Check in, Temple of Tooth, Cultural Show

03 Jan Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, Bottanical Garden,

04 Jan [My Flight is at 18:50]

Anybody can help me to suggest any changes/inclusions to the itenary. And also 04 Jan I dont know what to schedule, Is it ok to have a colombo drive and then to airport.

Dear Friends, look forward to your suggestions

Hi again,

Yes this fits. You would have to leave early (e.g. 8 AM) on 4th to enjoy any Colombo shopping time. You'd be there 11 AM and would have to leave 3:30 PM, then you're airport before 5 (esp. with the new airport Expressway) and that suffices. For 3rd try to add the train ride Peradeniya-Rambukkana (Pinawela) or the other way round, driver picks you up at the arriving station. The no. 2 best ride in the country, impressive vistas.

All the best,

No, the four you mentioned already easily fill the days (with the train trip mentioned above added). Don't over-do!
