What To Pack For Sri Lanka Holidays

Clothing you need in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a tropical country and it’s pretty warm which ever time you travel so rule number is to stick to lightweight clothes. Cotton or soft linens would be ideal. You can decide on the type of clothes you take depending on your style but try to pack light. If you are going on a long stay it’s best to carry at least two swimsuits. It’s advisable for the ladies to take a scarf/ shawl or a soft cardigan and a sarong or long skirt to wear when visiting religious places such as temples, churches and mosques. If you are planning on a long stay then try holiday rentals in Sri Lanka depending on where you plan to stay.

What shoes to wear in Sri Lanka

In terms of shoes you will definitely need a pair of rubber flip flops/ sandals for the beach then maybe another extra pair or two for day outings and dinner.

Accessories you’ll need

  • Remember to pack a pair of sunglasses and a hat. Make sure to carry sufficient sunscreen for everyone travelling because it’s going to be pretty sunny almost all the time.
  • If you enjoy taking photographs, investing in a waterproof camera will be useful and a waterproof phone cover too will be handy if you plan to be in water most of the time.
  • A travel adapter and reading material are others to add to the list.

Medication to bring

Don’t expect to run to the local drug store to pick up your allergy medicine or assume that you can by any type of regular medication locally – because it might not be that easy. If you are on special medication, always carry extras on different bags so that you have enough meds in case you misplace a bag. However, you can always walk into a private hospital and consult a General Physician who will be able to assist you.
