Compared to many European countries, Sri Lanka’s cost of living is low. Regardless, there are special tariffs and “tourist prices” in and around the popular attractions. These fees are clearly displaced at the entrances and exits to sights.

Things to know:

  • Payments should be made in Sri Lankan Rupees (LKR)
  • Children aged between 6 and 12 years get a 50% discount
  • Entrance for children under 6 years is free
  • Credit or debit cards are not accepted and sometimes it’s hard to find ATM machines nearby
  • Some places may charge an additional fee for photographing or filming

Keep an adequate amount of cash on you so you can avoid any unpleasant surprises when it comes to paying entrance fees. Keep an estimate in mind. For example, the total fee for Cultural Triangle including Anuradhapura, Dambulla, Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa for an adult is about 88 USD (1 USD = 195 LKR).
