Sri Lanka Travel Expense Report- Day Zero

I’ll be documenting my travel expenses in Sri Lanka on a day-to-day basis so that you get an idea of how much you’re likely to spend yourself.

In addition to that, I’ll be putting up a cumulative expense report as well which would give an overall picture of the budget you need to travel in Sri Lanka on a budget.

Here’s what I’ve spent starting from prior to departure to immediately after landing:

    Dollar Pakistani Rupee
1 Booked Homestay room on Airbnb for 2 nights $50 5000
2 Airbnb service charges $6 600
3 Airport pickup $27 2700
4 Purchased local SIM at airport from Mobitel $10 1000
  Grand Total $93 Rs. 9300


So all in all I’ve spent $93 or Rs.9300 and that’s in addition to the ticket. It’s going to be a long tour by the look of things.

Lets see if the expense go up or down as the tour progresses.
