All Prices of entrance fees for popular tourist attractions in Sri Lanka given in US Dollars. Some sites charge in Sri Lankan Rupees (these have been converted to USD where appropriate). Where prices vary, we have provided the higher value.

Discounts may apply for visitors from SAARC countries (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, The Maldives, Afghanistan)

You may need to call in advance for some of the lesser known sites and attractions or inquire from the hotel you are staying (in the area). The locals will always be happy to direct you in the right direction but cross-check with a few as important facts may get lost in the conversation/translation.

We have not included any site or attraction where animal cruelty is of concern. Please also speak to us (or your respective travel agent) about seeing animals in the wild, community involvement and sustainability best practices.
