What You Need To Know About Visiting Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, also known as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean is a treasure chest of rich culture and blessed with fabulous natural beauty. 

If you are planning a trip to Sri Lanka, here are some things you should know before you arrive in the island nation.

  • Located close to the Equator, the weather in Sri Lanka is mostly warm and humid all year. Keep in mind that the monsoon season differs from the north to the south of the island. For the northern part of Sri Lanka it is best to plan your trip during May to September, while the preferred time to visit the southern part is November to April.    


  • The official currency is the Sri Lankan Rupee with a currency code of LKR to help distinguish it from other currencies also called Rupee. If you are visiting Sri Lanka from India you should get your Indian Rupees exchanged for LKR in India itself or you can do so when you arrive at Colombo airport.    


  • To obtain a Tourist Visa for Sri Lanka, you need to get an Electronic Travel Authorisation or ETA done online. Visa on arrival facility is available for Indian nationals. However you would still need to apply for the ETA before you leave from India. A Sri Lankan Tourist Visa grants you up to 30 days stay in the country.  


  • Buddhism is the predominant religion in Sri Lanka. In fact the Temple of the Tooth is believed to contain one of the most important relics of Buddhism – a tooth of The Buddha. You can include a visit to this temple in your bucket list of places to see in Sri Lanka.


  • Buses and tuk tuks (rickshaws) are easily available to move about within a city or town. Trains are the best way to travel between different regions within Sri Lanka. A train journey will also offer you some breathtakingly scenic views of Sri Lanka’s natural beauty. Particularly recommended is the train journey between Kandy and Ella as it weaves through lush green tea plantations.


  • Sri Lanka is famous for its tea and is one of the largest exporters of tea in the world. To experience the making of the world famous Ceylon tea, head up north to the rolling plantations at Nuwara Eliya and participate in a tea tour that ends with sipping a refreshing cup of the beverage.    


  • Sri Lankan cuisine has its own distinct taste, flavours and uses a lot of fresh locally sourced produce such as rice, coconut, bananas, seafood and fragrant spices like cinnamon and black pepper. To know more about the food culture of Sri Lanka, click here or get hold of a Sri Lanka Travel Guide.


To make the most of your trip to Sri Lanka, it is best that you plan your trip and finances well in advance. Purchasing insurance to cover your overseas travel is essential. While any kind of mishap is the last thing on your mind while on a vacation, it is always best to be protected. A travel insurance policy for Sri Lanka will cover you from financial loss that could arise from situations such as an accident, medical expenses, to trip cancellation and loss of your luggage or passport.
