info about sri lanka
hey there, how long you plan to be there? First, I wanted to say that Sri Lankan people will make you feel welcomed in their country so you will no doubt have a lovely time there. As far as main airport, Colombo (Sri Lankaâ€™s capital) is the main entrance point and has connections to all parts of the country. Train and buses are used by locals and are great for tourists to get around since they're cheap (especially a bus ride which costs as little as 50 cents).
must do in sri lanka
Wildlife and nature viewing is super over there in Sri Lanka so you can imagine safairs and jungle tours being very popular there. I suggest visiting the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage if you want to get close to wildlife in the safety of a sanctuary. If you love history, there are lots of historic ruins, world heritage sites such as the Sigiriya rock citadel, which is the 8th wonder of the world.
free 30 day visa
have you sorted out your visa? Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months but other than that, you won't need a visa if you're a national of USA, Canada, Britain, Japan, or Australia. You will be issued with free 30 day visa on arrival at Colombo Airport and that's that. Something else worth noting is that American Express, Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted there.
