I am travelling with my niece to Sri Lanka next february and most of our trip is organised by a travel agency. However, we have a 'day off' in Habanara and I saw in previous topics that it would be possible to combine Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya in a day trip. We are extremely interested in both sites and would hate to choose between them.
I was actually wondering how best to tackle this? We're 2 girls in our 20ies so we're on a budget.
a) I was thinking about hiring a tuktuk for the whole day to drive us to the sites, is that a good idea?
b) Maybe we could even ask to drive us around Polonnaruwa since I've heared that the highlights are rather wide-spread and we could save some time by using the tuktuk to move around?
c) What price should we expect for this all-in tuktuk drive?
d) In which order should be visit the sites if you know that we are staying in Habanara?
