Sri Lanka Trip Under 20K

6:02 AM

Most of us travel lovers are always hunting for newer places to visit in economical way. Yes a true backpacker spirit is in globetrotting which calls for an itinerary covering the maximum  tourist destination within the budget. With this I thought of compiling a repository of budgetary destination.

This week I picked up our neighboring country across South, full of endless beaches, timeless ruins, elephants, tea and food. Very few can match the charm of Sri  Lanka. Here is a complete itinerary for a fun filled holiday in Sri Lanka.

    1. Hi Saurav....in this article I have suggested home stay which you can book through Airbnb as it saves a lot of money. Home stays and guest houses where u will have the complete house to yourself. I will also let you know about the hotels shortly but then the budget may vary in that case.
