This was the kid’s itinerary in Sri Lanka for 4 days. It was a jam-packed four days and the pain point was the check-in and check-out everyday; four nights, four hotels. You need some R&R after the four days of non-stop travelling. But, all the four hotels were good and in four days you get to go around a small circle and get a glimpse of this tear drop island in the Indian Ocean !!
