          I have booked this hotel on HB basis. Just wanted to know whether drinks/juices/water are included in buffet dinner or I'll have to buy them? In the later case how much is the cost of soft drink/juices or mineral water?

          As stated, it's really a taxi or tuk tuks. Four of us managed to taxi into Kandy for 600 lkr but getting back cost us 1000 lkr for two tuks as it was during school finish time and traffic was heavy.
