Hi Mathias,

I have been recently researching on Srilanka - my friend and i are trying to plan a trip during christmas time.

some starter tips that i have gained...
-stay off northern srilanka as thats the area with problems.

- going south is the best option for beaches. all the cultural spots are inland. So u could plan a circular trip, finishing off the cultural spots and then doing a a beach stretch.

- lovely airfares on srilankan airlines

- u could look up ahila on this forum who is from srilanka for more detailed help.

a friend of mine got some great hotel deals close to kandy - a cultural spot. will let u know as our trip gets more concrete! please drop me a line if u find something interesting as well!

Hi Mathias!

Friend of mine owned a dive base near Trincomalee, where I spent some time. Can't say I found it in any way problematic. The north got some nice beaches, is not overcrowded, different culture than down south and offers the possibility to do some good in the UN refugee camp for example ;).

My favourite places beside the beach:

Sigiriya (rock fortress)
Kandy ('Royal City’)
Nuwara Eliya (home of ceylon tea)

Didn't like the west coast from Negombo down to Matara too much - too touristy - but Galle (Dutch fort) is worth a visit.

Would love to go again
