    Wow, your trip looks amazing. We were planning a trip to Sri Lanka in March but we have only 6 days and your blog has been so handy !!! what would you recommend?and what can be given a skip? We are keen on all the above except Negombo. However, to fit it all in 6 days seems like a herculean task

    Please help 🙂 thanks

      Thanks Zahra! Totally agree Negombo is very skippable but makes an excellent base for those awkward flights at Colombo airport (Negombo is cheaper to stay in then Colombo and closer to the airport).

      We totally skipped the cultural triangle as it’s very expensive for foreigners (travelling on a budget) and not something we’re really interested in anyway. Kandy we didn’t like very much – it’s great if you’re really into Buddhism but otherwise very skippable.

      We loved the train rides from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya and then through to Ella. Ella was a massive highlight – the views from Ella Rock are stunning.

      If you’re into wildlife then definitely try to do a safari at Yala or Udawalawe and a whale watching safari at Mirissa (but check it’s the correct season for it).

      As far as beaches go, you will be extremely disappointed as we found Sri Lanka lacks this unfortunately – mainly because the water is too rough. It’s very cheap to fly to the Maldives from Colombo however – which is great for snorkelling and scuba diving. If you’re into surfing though (which we are not), you’ll love beaches like Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna. We never made it to Galle unfortunately and would definitely recommend a visit based on what other travellers told us.

      Hope that helps 🙂

    Great blog, thanks for all the info you guys share with the world.
    We are going to Sri Lanka in May and are hoping to do the train ride that you did (TRAIN FROM NUWARA ELIYA TO ELLA, A JOURNEY THROUGH THE CLOUDS).
    However, when I emailed the hotel we plan to stay at they had no idea. A friend of a friend tried to go last year and it was fully booked. So I have snippets of information from various sources but not sure how to get tickets and book on this incredibly journey. Any idea? Thanks, Lyndsey

      Thanks for your message Lyndsey. We just turned up last minute and booked. We were told best is to go the day before or a few days before during busy times, but when we went, we were told it’s best just to go on the day a few hours before and we were absolutely fine.

        Thanks Stefan, so I just ask a driver to take us to Nuwara Eliya train station? Trying to figure out the exact location so we know where to go when we arrive, thanks

          Yeah something like that. Our tuk tuk driver took us from our guesthouse in Nuwara Eliya to the train station and we bought our (3rd class) tickets there. The 1st class ones are limited and sell out quickly so maybe worth going a few days before for those. But the experience in 3rd class is more real. We just sat by the door with our legs dangling out for the entire journey.
