Sri Lanka Warnings and Dangers: 110 reviews and 74 photos
There is an on-going civil war in Sri Lanka, which means movement within Colombo is restricted for visitors. You also need to be aware that religious sites and public transport are subject to bombs. Having said that, throughout my stay, I didn't encounter trouble of any kind and didn't even notice anything suggesting war apart from the road blocks in Colombo.
