"2 prices" Sri Lanka Tourist Trap Tip by Midgetman

Sri Lanka Tourist Traps: 58 reviews and 48 photos

When you go to touristy sights etc , there are usually 2 prices, one for the Sri Lankans, and anothe rfor the tourists. Sometimes there is a third price for Indian Nationals. Beware because this can drive the costs of excursions up. i.e To get into Sigirya you have to pay $10 (US) each, just to walk around, which is extortionate if you're travelling on a shoe string!!

Unique Suggestions: I suppose, just accept that these people are a lot worse off than you, and that your expenditure is driving the tourist industry in this country, plus, the view at the top is pretty good.
