Sri Lanka is a very casual country, so no smart attire is required at any of the hotels. That said you may like to change for dinner at certain hotels – simply to make it more of an occasion. This is a personal decision. Because of the tropical climate light cotton and linen clothing is ideal. You will need some sturdy shoes for the climb up Sigiriya Rock, and on safari muted colors are best. Because of the heat we recommend you carry a sunhat and sunglasses at all times. We also suggest you pack some form of waterproof jacket as rain is always a possibility in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka’s currency is the 'Rupee', abbreviated as ‘Rps’. Rupees. Notes (Bills) are in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100, 500 & 1000, 2000 and 5000 Rupees. It is not possible to purchase Sri Lankan Rupees outside of the country. The current exchange rate is approximately 110 Rps to the Australian Dollar and 150 Rps to the United States Dollar
Visiting foreigners can exchange money at international airports where 24-hour exchange facilities are available, through banks and approved money changers. Because you will not be spending any time in the cities we suggest you get all necessary currency at the airport on arrival.
Travelers Cheque /Credit Cards
Travelers’ Cheque should be of well-known brands like Thomas Cook, American Express and Visa. The hotels generally accept Major Credit Cards like American Express, Master Cards, Visa, etc., including hotels, shops and airlines.
Tipping (This is only a recommendation)
It is usual to tip your chauffeur guide and National Park Drivers and Guide. Though we give below the general guidelines, it is to be remembered that tipping is a sign of gratification for good service, and therefore please view these guidelines as the middle ground, which can be adjusted depending on the level of service you feel you have received.
Please note the below amounts are per group / couple / individual traveler.
Chauffeur Guide: USD 20.00 per day given on last day departure.

In Sri Lanka voltage is 230 volts AC, 50 cycles, though some areas also have DC supplies. Visitors are advised to check the voltage before using electrical appliances. Socket sizes vary, so it is as well to take a set of plug adapters, available from most electrical stores.
The import of prohibited articles such as dangerous drugs, live plants, gold/silver bullion and coins, not in current use, is either totally prohibited or restricted. The law provides heavy penalties for the infringement of this restriction. Also, bylaw, visitors are banned from taking antiques and wildlife products out of the country – any infringement is punishable by fines and imprisonment.
Visitors to Sri Lanka find varied subjects for photography including people, monuments, wildlife, festivities, and landscapes. Most Sri Lankans are very happy to have their photograph taken but common courtesies apply and permission should be asked beforehand. No money need be given; this is not the Sri Lankan way.
Visiting Places of Worship
Removing shoes one’s before entering any temples is essential. Do not wear shorts, skirts above the knee or sleeveless tops in places of public worship.
It is always advisable to obtain good travel insurance to cover the worst possible scenario. Do keep a copy of your policy separately as a safeguard.
