Advice for Potential Travellers
Take socks for hot temple courtyards, ear plugs for occasional noisy air conditioning. Beware of hot spicy food, including salad and soup, test everything before you eat. But the curried meat is often mild, the heat is in the sauce.
Adams Peak was so crowded as to be dangerous. The top half was inaccessible owing to numbers of people. NKAR should have known this. A big disappointment.
2.5 hours in jeep on Knuckles with sideways seats and no seat belts, being thrown about on a road that was barely servicable was not a good experience.
Why change hotels in Kandy - unnecessary.
Why go to a hotel in Colombo when we did not see the town? Stay near airport?
Walking round Kandy lake horrid and polluted when beside road. Only temple side of lake is enjoyable.
Horton Plains disappointing-crowded with noisy people and so no wildlife. Rethink!
