Any advice from solo female travelers that have been to Sri Lanka? Any advice in general is welcome.
I'm planning a solo trip from South Korea to Sri Lanka in January to get some warm water surf in before I head back to Canada. Canada's gov website makes Sri Lanka sound pretty wild and dangerous. Any advice for and against going, or advice for when I get there is appreciated. I will make sure to wear tshirts and shorts, and try not to stand out too much, and do my research as I have for other countries around Asia.
If you wear t-shirts and shorts anywhere apart from at the beach you WILL stand out. Horribly. Sri lanka is conservative, though I wouldn't call it wild and dangerous.
My only warning would be regarding men jerking off pretty much anywhere and at any time of the day. It's a chronic problem in Sri Lanka, particularly on the tourist beach strips. Beware of walking alone on isolated beaches.
But away from the tourist places people are friendly, and mostly honest. 11 months ago
It's no problem. Sri Lanka is amazing. I found the people to be lovely. You'll be fine. There are plenty of tourists and it is a developed. No reason to worry. Have fun!
And the trains are really fun there :) 11 months agoAnswered by Emily Polar via WorldNomads.com
