What should I wear?
We know that we’ve really piqued your interest and you’re going to be thinking about this destination constantly for a few days before shortly announcing your trip to friends and family! As you know all too well, we love to look after you and we couldn’t end this post without advising you on what you need to wear when visiting Sri Lanka.
This earthly paradise has a tropical climate where you can enjoy its beautiful beaches so it’s best to take your most chic beachwear along with lightweight clothing suitable for the higher temperatures. However, knowing that you’re an intrepid explorer, we suggest you bring a sweater along for any trips you might be taking, since the mountainous regions have somewhat cooler air.
A camera is of course an essential piece of equipment for taking snapshots of the breathtaking views you will be constantly bombarded with. You simply cannot leave Sri Lanka without a wonderful memento of your trip as we are certain it will remain etched in your memory.
Once you’re packed and ready to go, we will be waiting for you at our Riu Sri Lanka hotel.
