Which are the best places to do in Sri Lanka in four days? I will be travelling from Colombo and need to get back on the fourth day to catch a flight back to Mumbai. Would you suggest Sigiriya and Kandy and/or any others?
Also I will be travelling alone and prefer public transport and safe budget hotels for a single woman traveller. Would prefer night travel to save time wherever possible. Are there any night trains/buses from Colombo? Should I go to Sigiriya or Kandy first? Are there any others I can cover if leave Colombo on 16th night and get back for a late evening flight on 20th?
