Ultimate guide to sri lanka: costs, itineraries, and favorites
I didn’t have a lot of expectations for the trip.
But it turned out to be an amazing experience.
Visiting sri lanka: how much does it cost?
Even when you splurge, it’s not that expensive.
Overall, i would say you couldn’t need more than a budget of $30 – 40 usd per day.
The country is very cheap, especially if you stick to delicious local or indian cuisine (the food is so cheap there’s no reason to grocery shop and cook your own meals), avoid the overpriced western style restaurants (local food tastes much better anyways), travel second class and on buses, and don’t go crazy with the accommodation.
Where to stay in sri lanka
It’s really hot, so to keep hydrated, you’d probably spend 300 rupees ($2 usd) per day on plastic bottles of water at 60 rupees ($0.
But a water bottle with a purifier costs just $20 usd (though my preferred brand lifestraw is slightly more).
Where to eat in sri lanka
It’s not cheap but sometimes, you just have to treat yourself.
While i didn’t go out much, if you find yourself in kandy, the slightly chilled bar is a popular meeting spot and has wonderful views of the city (and the sunset).
