We're off to Sri Lanka on the 23rd July and i've just got a few questions which i've not found fully answered by the many excellent answers to questions already posted in this forum.
-Appreciate that weather is always unpredictable, but given we're going to be in the country for the end of July/early August, do you think it's a bad idea to head to the southern beaches? A bit of rain is fine, but a complete washout would be a bit upsetting..
-Given I can't book it in advance, do you think i'll be alright to jump on the Colombo-Galle train (more or less) straight off the plane? Perfectly happy without AC etc, but am getting a bit too old to scramble for rammed trains!
-Is there any viable alternative to getting a taxi transfer from Unawatuna area to Yala? The safari there sounds ace and worth the trip, but i just wondered if a bus was an option - doesn't look like there's a train line any further than Matara at the moment.
Thanks in advance for all help!
