Sri Lanka worked out cheapest country on our 12 month budget round-the-world trip, we certainly managed to stay under our $50/day goal. Food was very cheap if you ate in the right places and accommodation and transport were incredibly good value. We mention the guest houses we use in the posts specific to that destination.
Sometimes we tour Sri Lanka on a tight budget using small guest houses but we also stay in some luxurious and beautiful hotels and villas. We can highly recommend Lighthouse Hotel near Galle for couples, families, foodies and beach lovers. We got married there, it was very special.
Taking guided tours and paying admission costs to the big attractions quickly eats into your cash, admission costs are relatively high in Sri Lanka. We had a wonderful time on our budget trip and didn’t feel any need to see and do everything, you can cut costs by not visiting all the big sites. There is easily enough to do in Sri Lanka without spending the big bucks.
That said, on a global scale, even if you go for the luxury end of the market Sri Lanka is a destination with bargains to be had. If you’re not watching your finances and used to western prices, you’ll probably not worry at all about costs.best tour packages in sri lanka
