A Splendid Holiday Starts With A Better Planning

When travelling to Sri Lanka, planning is essential for experiencing a memorable family holiday, especially if it’s your first visit. Careful planning ensures a smooth exploration of this beautiful island and lays the foundation for a rewarding and enlightening journey with your family. We believe the following travel tips will be helpful whether you’re a first-time traveler or a frequent visitor to Sri Lanka.

Plan Your Trip With The Best Travel Tips

Plan In The Right Season

There are two main monsoon seasons in Sri Lanka, each affecting the island differently throughout the year. The northeast monsoon typically impacts the east coast from November to February, while the southwest monsoon affects the west and south coasts from May to September. Plan your travel accordingly to avoid prolonged rain and to make the most of the ideal weather for visiting beaches, wildlife reserves, and historical sites.

Pack The Essentials

Don't forget to pack lightweight clothing suitable for the country's heat and humidity when visiting Sri Lanka, especially if you plan to explore beaches or locations with high temperatures. Remember to bring sun block hats, sunglasses, and light colored cloths. Using insect repellent is also crucial, particularly in remote areas or near water where mosquitoes are common. To stay hydrated and minimize the use of plastic, bring reusable water bottles along with a basic first aid kit and over the counter medication. 

Plan Where You Stay

Sri Lanka offers a wide range of accommodation to suit your wish and budget, ranging from boutique hotels to guesthouses, eco-friendly jungle lodges, and luxurious beach resorts. To streamline your travel experience and minimize time spent commuting between attractions, carefully plan your itinerary and select your accommodation accordingly. It's best to book lodging in advance, especially during peak seasons, in popular tourist destinations such as Ella, Galle, Kandy, and the Coast.  Utilize online reviews and recommendations to choose the perfect hotel that aligns with your requirements and budget.
