Around the Island

The beautiful island country- Srilanka houses a gamut of attractions but getting around the island can be a daunting task if you are not well prepared in advance or know how to get about visiting the different places it houses. Getting around around the island- Srilanka in many ways adds to the excitement of touring this island country.

Srilankans follow left hand driving and it is advisable for you to avoid travelling alone in the nights or to remote places. The taxis with their yellow tops and red white plates are metered but still it is advised you discuss with the driver an approximate amount and be ready to pay at least a ten percent tip, it is an expected tip by the drivers. Tuktuks are highly recommended only for shot travels and quick tours within short distances. These Indian made Tuk Tuks have been recommended as an exciting means to tour around the short distance placesaround the island in Srilanka and discussing the fare before hand recommended
