QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much does it cost to tour Sri Lanka?

    Your Sri Lanka tour price can vary greatly, depending on the length of the trip, the month you are traveling, and the accommodation and services that you wish to book. Two weeks in Sri Lanka, for example, can cost anywhere from around USD 800 to USD 2,500 per person.

    If you are looking for something less expensive, you can opt for tours lasting between four to seven days that can be booked for USD 500 or less. However, please keep in mind that most tours do not include international flights, visa charges, and travel insurance, which you will have to factor into your budget.

    Travelers heading out to discover Sri Lanka on their own (without a package tour), should be prepared to spend around USD 40 per person, per day on food and accommodation.

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • How many days are enough for Sri Lanka?

    Sri Lanka is full of incredible sights and is certainly not a country to rush through. We suggest spending no less than five days in the country. However, if you have time, two weeks in Sri Lanka is ideal. For further guidance, check out our in-depth travel guide on how many days to spend in Sri Lanka.

  • How to plan an Asia tour?

    Asia is a relatively large continent, so there are a wide variety of destinations to explore. Therefore, if you are planning a multi-country trip to Asia, the first thing you need to prepare is the list of countries you are interested in along with your starting and ending points. You would also need to decide on the best time for your trip depending on seasonal variations that affect each country. 

    After finalizing when and where to travel in Asia, you should make arrangements for all the necessary travel documents. These would include visas, insurances, Covid-19 test reports, vaccine cards, and so on.

     

  • Which countries should I visit in Asia?

    Asia has more than enough destinations to meet every traveler’s needs and desires. If you are into adventure, look no further than the mighty Himalayas. Go on an exhilarating hike to the base camp of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, or head for the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh instead. Thailand, with its blend of dazzling nightlife, rich history, and striking monuments, is the perfect destination not just for those who wish to let their hair down but also for travelers looking forward to being part of a memorable cultural experience. 

    Go on a tour to Cambodia, home to the monumental Angkor Wat, if you are into off-the-beaten-path destinations, or choose a Japan tour if you wish to discover how traditions and modernity can be seamlessly blended. The Maldives, with its numerous islands and beaches, is sure to provide you with countless opportunities to kick back on sandy stretches, swim in turquoise waters, and go island-hopping, while the rainforests of Malaysia and Indonesia are a haven for wildlife enthusiasts.
