Travelling without a hassle is what every traveller wants. So why take a risk when your travelling in Sri Lanka?
Best way to plan your travelling is to be more conscious about the holidays in Sri Lanka where some institutes might close or may not operate on those days. Your long awaited tour might get effected if you don’t plan properly. Bars and Pubs, Museums, Banks and other related organisations will not operate on these holidays.
However, during some holidays there will be religious and cultural celebrations and events you can enjoy. Those will be the best days to feel the Sri Lankan vibe during your tour. Tasting various traditional food, wearing traditional clothing and meeting new people will be an experience that you will never gain any where in the world.
