Hi! I am Zak from Sri Lanka. I have made 3 studio apartments for the convenience of travelers at affordable prices with all facilities. Since I have been a traveler from the age of 18 I have used all my experience and made the apartments to feel like your second home. :)
Thanks to AirBNB I have met nice good people from around the world and I would like to help more with all the information I have collected from the tourists.
When you book hotels, always use AirBNB since they help us to get best rates and good locations. Also, when you book a hotel don't book one which costs less than US$40 if you want to stay at a clean, good place. There is a cost for everything involved in running a hotel;cleaning the place, laundering the linen etc. At low cost lodgings the linen and other facilities are not cleaned after each guest leaves. The incoming guests are given the same linen. This is what travelers who had stayed at such places told me.
You can use the public bus or train service to visit most places in Sri Lanka. To travel to some places however, you will have to take a taxi. If you are on a tour for 7 /10 days it is better to hire a vehicle for the entire tour period. This way, you can visit more places while traveling more comfortably and more quickly at a cheaper cost.
I have made a tour plan including the cost of transport for the benefit of tourists who need guidance on places to visit in Sri Lanka. You are advised to book the hotels through AIRBNB for reasons mentioned above.
