Sri Lanka

loved their trip to Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a lovely place & the people are so friendly. Also the food is very good. The description of the hotels did not always appear correct. Lal's room was not Deluxe A/C. Thotopula room was amazing. Kasa de Kalu room was good but there was only one lady there who did everything & locked up then went home when she had finished.The actual hotel was in a very poor state.The other hotels were fine .Kirinda lodge was quite remote & difficult to get to because of the state of the rough track.

Best parts:
My driver was the best I could of had. He was so knowledgeable about travel times & distances between hotels. He also could advise on other places to visit that were not on the itinerary. For example as there were no tickets available for the train at Nuwara Eliya we went to the next station where I got a seat. He the advised me to get off the train a station before the last so we had enough time to get to Yala National Park. I also met his lovely family on the way back to Colombo
Worst parts:
On reflection I should have had more time at the various places of accommodation. Maybe a rethink if I visit again
