@PhillyLove:  Oh, if you go to Sri Lanka, definitely try to go up to the elephant orphanage!! I haven’t been there yet, but I definitely want too.  We were planning to go to SL this summer, but now I’m preggers and will be laaate in pregnancy so won’t be able to now—so I’m super jealous of you!

If it were me, I would mainly just go to eat all the sri lankan food I could–the hoppers (appam), mutton rolls, kottu roti, wattalapum…yum!  

I’ve heard the beaches in the Maldives are beautiful…but I don’t know anything about resorts in either place. I’m more of a backpack-around type of person.

Hi everyone! I’d definitely choose to visit the Maldives!The wild beauty of Maldives are amazing. You can book the luxary hotel or simple and comfortable bungalow. white as snow sand, clean turquoise water make your photos colourful and vivid!Don’t forget to find a great photographer to capture all this beauty! I recommend to visite this site http://www.wedgo.net/photographer-in-maldives.html

You have just described our honeymoon! We are starting in Sri Lanka with our own driver for the duration (1 week) and then flying for a week in the Maldives staying in an over water suite 😁 it all came in under £5000. We did have to shop around to get a deal that good.

nurseybee55 :  Was that 5k for travel and accomodation or including spending money? Would you reccomend the over water villa you stayed in?

abouttodoit17 :  it doesn’t include spending money but the Maldives part of the holiday is all inclusive. We haven’t been yet…we are going in October. It gets really good reviews though 😁

lol I love that a 5 year old thread got resurrected.  I actually just did 9 days in Sri Lanka followed by 4 days in the Maldives and it was fantastic!
