Travel On A Budget - Sri Lanka

Many of us here are travel enthusiasts and a free spirit and love exploring different countries without having to burn a hole in pocket. So, here I am letting you know about how to travel to the beautiful country “Sri Lanka” and spend a good 5-6 days in the lap of nature with a budget of less than 30,000 INR per head!

I, along with my two siblings, visited Sri Lanka in the month of September, which is a shoulder season to visit the country, and a good enough time to wander. Our return tickets from Mumbai-Colombo costed us 15,000 INR per head. However, if you’re lucky you can manage getting the same tickets in 12,000 INR too.

The VISA process is also a tad too simple. You can apply for it, yourself, on www.eta.gov.lk and get done in a few minutes, costing you something around 1,000 INR.

1. Where to stay:

A Beach Home, away from home, Mount Lavinia:  We booked this place through AirBnB, to be welcomed by our awesome host for the next couple of days and the owner of the place, Asela Bogohawatte. The beach home was a nice 3 storeyed-apartment with a terrace, which can easily house 5-6 people. It was a nice, neat and clean place with positive vibes. The entire apartment costed us around 3-3.5k INR per night, which is something dirt cheap for a place like this. Also, the place is generally booked a few months in advance so you got to plan this well. The next morning breakfast was complimentary from Asela, and we got the taste of some Sri Lankan snacks! Also, if your idea of going to Sri Lanka is to chill and you’re a beach bum just like I am, this place is perfect as it is right next to the beautiful Mount Lavinia Beach.
