Sri Lanka is a small island which really packs a punch in terms of tourist value for money. With diverse attractions and landscapes occupying a relatively minute geographical space, the island is easy to navigate and experience in its entirety without breaking the bank.
Budget travelers can rely on the public transportation network in the country but also expect to pay significantly less than if they were to secure the services of a tour operator or a rental car. Bus services and train networks can be used to travel to all regions of the country.
Deals and packages
When it comes to planning a trip on a budget keeping track on the deals and discounts available in villas in Sri Lanka is a good idea regardless of the destination. Consult your travel agents or a research online for promotions as hotel chains the likes of VC Villas & Resorts offers a myriad of great deals throughout the year.
Travel during off season
Most tourists head to the island during the months from January to April when the prices of commodities, accommodation venues, tickets for local attractions and other services hit an all-time high. Avoid these congested tourist months and choose dates during the offseason when the hotels, as well as the points of interests, are less crowded.
Free or affordable attractions are easy to find in the country for travelers on a budget. Public parks such as Viharamahadevi Park and cultural attractions such as Independent Square are open to visitors free of charge.
