Due to the popular time of year next week the trains are totally sold out. So i'm looking for a plan B
A)To get from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, i still have the option for an unreserved train? So i could turn up at Kandy station on the day and buy a ticket that way, or even better travel to Peradeniya and get a ticket from there instead? What about luggage if i opt for that, we'll have two backpacks/holdalls?
B) I also need to get from Nuwara Eliya to Tiss, it seems the easiest way to do that would be a private driver, i guess i could hire the driver over two days to get me from Kandy all the way to Tiss.
If i go for option B what's the best way to find a fair driver in either Kandy or Nuwara Eliya? Usually for Asia i've found numerous options in the forums of TA but there doesn't seem to be much for Sri Lanka
