Carve - - TRAVEL GUIDE -

WHEN TO GO: Oc­to­ber - March AIR­PORT: Colombo AC­COM­MO­DA­TION: See our rec­om­mended guide over­leaf. LAN­GUAGE: Sin­halese and Tamil are the two of­fi­cial lan­guages of Sri Lanka. Pretty much ev­ery­one speaks English too. CUR­RENCY: Sri Lankan Ru­pee RUB­BER: None - board­ies, biki­nis and rashies.

WATCH OUT FOR: The roads are in­sane, buses race each other to be the first to pas­sen­ger stops. Be care­ful any­where near them. Al­ways hag­gle for best prices, it's ex­pected.

AFTER DARK: Some great restau­rants and cafes in all ar­eas with all sorts of food. Seafood is great here. Lots of street food is re­ally good qual­ity. Try the ro­tis - filled flat­breads. Great and cheap.
