Tattoos

Local culture

The local culture here is quite charming. The cities like Colombo and Kandy have more open cultures in comparison to the rural areas. If you are travelling in rural parts you will have to make sure you dress appropriately. Even in the major cities, it is not always advisable to bear too much skin. Especially when you are in public places you will have to make sure you cover yourself adequately.

Transport

The transportation system in Sri Lanka is well developed. Of course, when you use public transportation like buses and trains you will not be able to expect lavish comforts so keep your expectations in check. Delays are also inevitable when using public transportation. You can consider downloading apps like Pickme and Uber when travelling in Sri Lanka. This will make it easier for you to book your cabs and tuk tuks on the go. As the fare that you have to pay will be displayed on the phone at the end of the journey, you will not have to go through the experience of haggling with the drivers too. You can always hail tuk tuks from the street too. But be sure to check if the meter is working before you get in to the tuk tuk. This will make it easier for you to enjoy your journey without a worry on your mind!

Food in Sri Lanka

There are plenty of great dishes that you will be able to try out when travelling in Sri Lanka. Be sure to dine at the good restaurants if you want to avoid unpleasant situations! You should also buy bottled water at all times instead of drinking water from the taps. Keep in mind that local food can be quite spicy! Dishes like kottu roti, hoppers and isso wade should not be missed when travelling in Sri Lanka.
Hope the information above will help you to make the most of your travel experience in the enchanting island of Sri Lanka.
