    hi there, notice you’ve recently been to Sri Lanka – was wondering if you had any thoughts/tips for a female thinking of travelling there alone? Any help appreciated!

    • Hi, which area of the country are you planning to go to and when? What kinds of things do you want to do there? Sri Lanka is a very beautiful country and there are lots of things to do and see.

      For the first part of my trip, I travelled with a photographer to the East Coast for surfing and that was great. Then I travelled to the Ancient Cities region by myself. I had a tour guide/driver for that part. Then I spent a few more days in Colombo by myself and that was alright. I just walked everywhere or took tuk-tuks.

      I definitely think it is easier to travel with a companion in Sri Lanka. My advice is to dress modestly (skirts past the knees and cover your shoulders). Also, try to get an Ayurvedic massage from a reputable place. If you do go with a tour guide, watch out for them taking you to sketchy places where they get a commission.

      I recommend getting a copy of the Insight Guide to Sri Lanka and A Motorcycle Journey into the Heart of Sri Lanka’s Civil War, By Mark Stephan Meadows.

      Hope this helps.

        Thanks so much for your advice and help – I’m not sure yet, I think I will have a month or so – probably a mix of beaches/dive spots/ seeing architecture and also heading into the tea plantations too.
