our 7 day budget trip to Sri Lanka

Hi. We are a family of 8 planning to be in sri lanka from 24th to 30th December 2012. While we have place to stay in Colombo, we need advice about what to do and where to go in this short time. Please help.

Hi there,

Budget generally equals 'public transport because car-driver costs too much'. As long as you have little luggage and ample time, buses (and the odd train connection) work well. For Indians generally Kandy and Hill Country (Eliya and Ella) are preferred over Cultural Triangle as they love a cooler hill station environment. But do note that all of these require overnight stays inland, can't really be done as a daytrip from Colombo. For your Colombo stay, see the 'top question' on day trips from beach resorts.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
