"Staying with Friends" Top 5 Page for this destination Sri Lanka Favorite Tip by Maxus

Sri Lanka General: 197 reviews and 204 photos


Favorite thing: I read somewhere that Sri Lankan law requires all persons, including foreigners* who are guests in private houses to register at the local police station.

I have been staying with friends in Sri Lanka for 10 years and I tried to do this once but the police had no idea what I was talking about.

*This does not apply to individuals staying in hotels or guest houses.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
