Tips

  • Tamil and Sinhala are the two official languages of Sri Lanka. English is spoken widely.
  • The currency of Sri Lanka is the Sri Lankan Rupee. ATM’s are common and credit cards are widely accepted.
  • Tipping around 10% is generally expected in Sri Lanka.
  • Don’t leave Sri Lanka without an elephant statue, a saris and a wooden devil mask.
  • Try one of the many small cafes, confusingly called 'Hotels', for a cheap lunch. Drink bottled water only.
  • Sri Lanka is hot! Stick to natural fibres and loose layers. Cover your shoulders when visiting religious sites.
  • Never take a photo with your back to a statue of Buddha. It’s considered very disrespectful.
  • Sri Lankan police will arrest and may deport people sporting tattoos of Buddha.

Sri Lanka Tours and Trips 2017/2018 Reviews

  • "Everything about this trip was perfect. There was a great combination of sights and activities like walking, cycling, dancing, cooking, riding public and private trasnport and visiting coconut plantation. The itinerary includes places that were stunning and we got to see Sri Lanka at its finest and it also gave us flexibility to decide what we wanted to join at certain parts of the tour. Our tour guide (Indika) was also awesome and took good care of us until the end of the tour. All in all it was trip of a lifetime with great location, stunning views, fun activities and an amazing guide. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have the same fantastic experience as we did."

  • "The tour to Sri Lanka was incredible because of our amazing tour guide which gave us lots of information about the culture of Sri Lanka. However, I woud have prefered if the guide took us to places with authentic food considering it's called Spices of Ceylon and there was not enough option given apart from hotel food."

  • "Everything about the tour was well organized from the accommodation, the transportation and the tour guide. The meals were great, the transportation were superb and the tour guide was the best ever. I definitely recommend this trip to everyone who loves to travel and experience the beauty of Sri Lanka."
