I am planning to go to Sri Lanka, and I would like some idea about prices for food and accomodation. I am in Goa now. Is that similar?
Sri Lanka is a beautiful country.normally hotel rates are around USD 30 on words.but you can find a good 4* hotel around USD 100.00 per day.other hotels are good.but only basic facilities.if you traveling with a group and searching for a law budget,best option is go for bungalows.there are plenty of holiday bungalows.but most of them are not including food.cook is there and you can ask him to cook what you want,you can find Indian foods in anywhere else in Sri Lanka.and cheap too. almost 8 years ago
It depend about your budget and the requirement.If you are comfortable with basic facility accommodation and public transport.You can save lot.but its bit hard and difficult.because as an each and every country there are lot of local people try to cheat you and tell double price to you.we had same experience when we at Thailand.I think you better contact a travel agent in sri lanka.they will arrange accommodation,transport and other facilities as per to your requirement.if not you can contact a friend who is living in Sri Lanka.If you want more details about sri Lanka.feel free to contact me anytime. almost 8 years ago
