Hi. I'm going to be in Sri Lanka for 5 days in October an am trying to get a handle on which beach would be the best to visit this time of year. I know that October is not the best time of year for Sri Lanka and that I cannot avoid the rain completely, but would love to minimize it as much as possible.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Also, since my time is limited, is it worth doing an overnight trip to Kandy. I am thinking about taking the train the morning after I arrive, staying the night, and then heading back to the beaches via Colombo. Is it worth the trip?
