Sri Lanka Travel Expense Report- Day Two

Budget travel in Sri Lanka is no child’s play. In fact it’s the same story in the entire South Asia. Despite all the odds, I’m taking the challenge and trying to prove budget travel can be possible in Sri Lanka with a little bit of compromise, improvisation and a lot of help from strangers. Remember […]

Sri Lanka Private Transport can put a dent in your wallet

Sri Lanka private transport is not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. Believe me, I’ve been here for a week and already it’s putting a hole in my wallet. And it wouldn’t have been so bad if the tourist attractions didn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Below is the information that was […]

Sri Lanka is expensive without discrimination, says Ishara De Silva

Sri Lanka is expensive without discrimination, says Ishara De Silva, one of the most successful young women of Sri Lanka’s hospitality industry. She came across my article about Sri Lanka being expensive for tourists and contacted me personally to voice her concern that this is not the case. Sri Lanka, she admits, has become quite […]

Sri Lanka Travel Expense Report- Day One

Sri Lanka expense report for the first day was not very promising. As much as I tried to keep my expenses down, they just spiraled out of control. You would think that $13 isn’t that much so what I’m bitching about. But the thing is, I hardly did anything outdoors all day. I spend most […]

Colombo Sri Lanka- First Impressions

Landing in Colombo Sri Lanka I was starkly reminded of the poor unsuspecting people from the villages of Pakistan who were promised to be taken to Dubai, only left to be put on a launch at Manora and brought to Seaview Karachi. Having never seen a metropolitan city like Karachi, they were deceived into thinking […]

Sri Lanka – Boarding Pass Loss and other mishaps

The Sri Lanka tour did not start off well at all. Even before I had boarded the plane, I lost my boarding pass right at the boarding counter. Can’t get any stupider than that, considering the fact that I’ve travelled a hundred times before both local and international. This ought to be submitted to the […]
why sri lanka to visit

Why Sri Lanka of all the places on planet Earth?

‘Sri Lanka!’, my friend almost shouted at me. ‘Have you lost it?,’ he just couldn’t believe it. ‘What’s there to see in Sri Lanka? If you want to see stunning landscapes, just go to the northern side of Pakistan. Why go all the way to Sri Lanka? It’s damn expensive amongst other things.’ My friend […]

How I Tried to Make The Sri Lanka Tour Plan Work

My Sri Lanka tour plan bombed big time. I was supposed to go there in January with a friend who unfortunately had a bike accident just three days prior to the departure and I had to abort the plan. With him out of the picture, I tried to go it alone and here’s how I […]
