As for Mumbai, at the moment it is extremely hot. 85 degrees. Scared to go out LOL.
But I have to no choice. After returning home I just rush to the shower to cool down.
Galle Fort Hotel
This is a boutique hotel that perfectly blends modern luxury and traditional Sri Lankan ambiance. Originally a part of the old Fort itself, this beautifully restored colonial-style mansion 8767 s architecture adds much character to this high-end boutique hotel. The rooms are large and kept in the classic style, while still providing all modern comforts. There is also a lovely pool. Located centrally in Galle Fort, it 8767 s an ideal base from which to explore the area.

Tangalle is even more beautiful than Mirissa. It is wild and untouched and not crowded at all. Tangalle = sand, sea, and sun. Go for a stroll or run along the beach in the afternoon, look for sea turtles and enjoy the amazing sunset. The only real drawback to Tangalle is that the sea is rough and bathing is not really possible except in small protected coves.
Jump on a tuk-tuk (they are everywhere and will hunt you down and follow you until you take their offer) and let the tuk-tuk driver take you around the highlights of Colombo. This will save you a lot of time and a heat stroke.
Sri Lanka is a very nice country to visit all year round, but June can be rainy especially on the south and west coast and also the Hill Country (Nuwara Eliya and Ella). The weather is, however, better in the north and east coast in June.
There you go, our recommended two week Sri Lanka itinerary. As you can see there are plenty of things to do in Sri Lanka. This is, however, a quite packed itinerary. If you want to take things a bit slower, you can cut down on the number of beach places to visit and choose either Mirissa or Tangalla. You can also cut down on the number of cities to visit inland.
Awwww, thank you sooooo much! So happy to hear that you noticed and liked the interactive map! 🙂 Espen spent a lot of time coding and getting it to work properly. The map is an experiment and the first post where we have it implemented, so we are thrilled that you noticed it and liked it, hehe. Thanks a million!
After India, by the end of February we are heading to Sri Lanka. I guess this is quite a good time to visit? How much, average, do you think it will cost as a couple, per day?
I know budgets are a bit complicated because it really depends on the type of accommodation chosen and the activities, but at least is for us to have an idea.
Another route could be to do the west coast and a national park: Colombo International Airport Bentota Beach Mirissa Beach Galle surfing at Weligama Beach Tangalle Beach Yala National Park
