Safety
Sri Lanka is generally safe to walk about and travel, nevertheless it is best to remain vigilant at all times. Here are a few pointers on how to avoid being scammed or robbed:

* If anyone is too keen to give you advice or directions, walk away.
* Do not do business with street vendors, people you’ve just met, people who have been introduced to you by strangers, tri-shaw drivers etc.
* Write down and keep your hotel number with you at all times.
* If it’s your first visit to Sri Lanka, never admit it to anyone.
* Don’t venture out alone at night, always travel in groups.
