QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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 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 Sri Lanka a safe destination for tourists?

    Sri Lanka is a medium-risk country with moderate crime rates. Most travelers do not feel unsafe in the country. However, you should always be cautious while you are there. Crimes that tourists are most likely to encounter are pickpocketing and bag snatching, both of which are fairly common in Sri Lanka. 

    In addition to this, solo female travelers are at risk of sexual violence, which is why we always recommend choosing a group tour rather than exploring the country alone.

  • How many days do I need to travel in 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.
