Things to know before visiting Sri Lanka


“An economically peaceful and prosperous Sri Lanka is dream of youth of the nation. My message for the youth is to collectively work for an inclusively developed Sri Lanka.” –

Abdul Kalam.

There is nothing more beautiful, exotic, natural, full of wildlife and happy faces, in the world than Sri Lanka. The island is located between India and southeast Asia. There are so many things to learn about Sri Lanka before visiting the island. Let’s move head over heels to acquaint ourselves more with Sri Lanka.

It once was a land of violent history and barbarous civil war but now it is way safer than ever. It’s still on its way to be a developing tourist place.

Places like Vietnam and Thailand are on contrary cheap but Sri Lanka could be a bit expensive. Also it is best to keep some cash handy as it would be needed to pay for most things.

If you love to wander around foreign roads by renting and driving the car by your own, then you should have a special driver’s license and a valid International Driving Permit. Think twice before hitting unknown roads. Else, it is best to do the entire tour with the private drivers.

Sri Lanka is known to be one of the friendliest island on the planet. Smiling faces are quite easy to catch.

There is no way to have enough of the exotic Sri Lankan food. The spices, the ingredients, on the other hand are expensive and hard to come by.

If you’re wandering on the streets and feel thirsty then it is better to keep a bottle handy rather than drinking from the tap. Check the expiry on the bottle before taking a big gulp. It would help your sensitive tummy.
