Travel in August, 30 weeks pregnant

I’m travelling with my partner to Sri Lanka in Early Aug for 8 nights and are looking for suggestions on two places to stay (town and accom) that are luxurious and with air con as I’ll be 30 weeks pregnant. But preferably not commercial or too touristy.

I was thinking Arugam bay for 4 nights for the surf (my partner is a surfer) and then somewhere in nature.

Any suggestions for me please? (Or tips for travelling pregnant?)

Hi there,

Well unless you can afford the Cinnamon Air flight I'd pick a 3rd base, to avoid the 8+ hour transfer Airport-Arugam in one go. So e.g. as 2nd longer base Ella or Nuwara Eliya, and as stopover base for 1 night Uda Walawe (safari) or Galle area (architecture and a different beach).

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

If you are pregnant avoid safaris. Bumpy roads would not be good. 🤗
