Tourism is rapidly growing in Sri Lanka. The main languages spoken here are Sinhala, Tamil, and English. Sri Lanka has slowly become a favorite amongst many tourists because of its natural beauty, cheap prices, and extraordinary facilities.Other than the usual bus and train, we found “Tuk-tuks” to be the most convenient and fun mode of transportation. Make sure you ask the Tuk rider to turn on the meter before you start your ride.
You can also download apps such as Pickme or Uber for your transportation needs. It’s best to avoid the rainy seasons when traveling here.
