JENNY’S TRAVEL TIPS
GOOD TO KNOW
There is a 17% tourist levy on purchases in stores, and in most restaurants a 10% service gratuity is included. Very few restaurants have wine – grab a beer or cocktail instead – or take your own.
MUST-SEE SIGHT The stilt fishermen at Weligama and Ella Rock are unique and memorable.
ITEMS TO PACK Temperatures vary drastically. It’s hot at the coast where you’ll need sunblock and a hat, but cold inland where a warm jacket may be needed.
