SRI LANKA TRAVEL TIPS
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TRAVEL TO SRI LANKA??? The best time to visit Sri Lanka is from December to March where you can expect sunny skies and less rainfall; during this period, it is good for whale-watching as well. The best weather on the other hand is from April/May to September where the weather is slightly more chilly.
WHY SRI LANKA? Sri Lanka is unique country that blends several key points of the 'purpose of travel' of our clients
1) nice beaches located at the south beach, clean waters, good for suntanning
2) shopping / art of bargaining in Colombo Town
3) experience cold weather at Nuwara Eliya
4) YALA NATIONAL PARK – authentic animal safari onboard jeep (to closest to an African experience)
5) food food food!
SHOULD I TAKE OUT TRAVEL INSURANCE BEFORE VISITING SRI LANKA: We know that a lot of things can happen from the time you book your holiday to the actual date so whenever you are travelling it would be good precaution to have travel insurance.

ARE THERE DIRECT FLIGHTS TO COLOMBO, SRI LANKA FROM SINGAPORE? Yes, at the moment, there are 3 flights – Sri Lanka Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Emirates. The most preferred one is by Sri Lanka where they have 3 flights daily to/fro Singapore, they too have the best timings from the other two choice. Singapore Airlines only have a midnight flight into Colombo and coming back is past midnight as well, thus you may experience longer waiting time at the airport rather than enjoying the tour. Occasionally, Emirates do have promo fares which are the cheaper option from the other two; however flying into Colombo past midnight and coming back will be at 1400 hours which is ideal as after checking out from the hotel, guests can head to the airport straight.
WHAT SHOULD I PACK? A valid passport, sun block, summer clothings, and a camera are all you need! However you may need some jacket should you visit Nuwara Eliya highlands where temperature at night can be as cold as 10 degrees. There is to bring proper footwear too as you may need some hiking (up Dambulla Rock Fotress/Yala National Park). Do also bring an international adapter where you can charge your electronic device to keep in touch with your love ones while sharing the enjoyment moments you will have in Sri Lanka!
WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED? It is encouraged to bring USD while you are in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka rupees as a national currency is accepted as well, however should you have any extra cash with you while going back, the currency may not hold any worth should you wish to have it changed back to your original currency. Otherwise, credit card is widely accept in hotels and restaurants.
WHAT KIND OF ELECTRIC OUTLET IS USED IN THE SRI LANKA? Voltage is 220v and plug is 3 pins round which is easy to find in Sri Lanka. You can even ask your hotel reception should they rent it out to you , other than that you can try buying the universal adaptor.
DO I NEED A VISA? At the moment, only citizens from Singapore, Maldives and Seychelles do not require any visa upon entry. Otherwise, for other nationalities, you may visit http://www.eta.gov.lk/slvisa/ for more information
MEAL OPTIONS? All our Sri Lanka tours are fullboard meals. Majority of the time (other than in Colombo where you can request), you will be served with Indian fusion food. For our muslim friends, you can request for halal meals as well. Should you require oriental meals, you may request to have them while in Colombo town. However do note that special request are subject to availability
WHAT HAPPENS UPON ARRIVAL AT COLOMBO AIRPORT? You will be met by our airport representative, holding board with your name on it at the arrival area. As our Sri Lanka tours are all private, They will then assist you with your luggage and escort you to the hotel for check in and depending on the itinerary flow, proceed for the next leg of your travel itinerary
THINGS TO NOTE? All the entrance fees to sites are already inclusive, thus, there is no need for anymore additional payment other than guide tipping which is recommended USD 3-5 per person/day which you will be required to give at the end of the tour.

    :

    Didn't have a comfortable ride in the first vehicle. Contacted Lokopoko for a change while on trip. They immediately arranged for a replacement even when we were already in another city few hours away from Colombo. Fantastic service! Good accommodating operator too. Was very comfortable throughout the journey. My family totally enjoyed ourselves. Already recommended a number of friends to you guys. Please serve them well! Thank you!

    :

    Enjoyed the trip thoroughly. Would have liked to stay longer to visit Hortons Plains, recommended by the guide. Professional service provided by the guide. Will surely book again with Lokopoko.

    :

    my company department went for this tour organised by Lokopoko. The tour consultant was very knowledgeable and everything was executed well. Most of the meals given was North Indian meals, can request for halal or oriental meals as well. The safari was amazing, especially the whole group manage to catch a glimpse of the leopard! Authentic Sri Lanka!

    :

    it was very good all around..my family and myself love it!!! especially my kids who saw animals in the wild for the first time!the train ride from kandy to nuwara eliya was interesting, views on board the tourist cabin is spectacular, the itinerary didn't include the visit to sigiriya rock fotress as it was located up north as per the tour guide, do suggest this visit when booking your tour, may need to extend your stay though but worthwhile! :)

    :

    What can i say. Pre-tour services were really good. Tour planning and service were excellent. If you're into historical sites, Sigiriya is recommended. Overall, Sri Lanka is an up and coming destination. Go now before it gets too commercialized. Nature, wildlife, peace!

    :

    Parfait! Lokopoko did a good job in organising a tour package for me and my family. The visit to Yala National Park was great! My kids love seeing the wild éléphants and léopards in their naturel habitat. Food was spicy but manageable.

  7. Mary Aquino
    4 out of 5

    :

    Just one word: EXCELLENT! The only downside was the long journey in the car but it is what is. Part and parcel of the trip. Still worth the visits though to all the attractions. Will return to use Lokopoko again. 

  8. Samantha Teo
    5 out of 5

    :

    everything went well! my parents and myself thoroughly enjoyed the trip. the only downside we face is the travelling time from one point to another, at least 4 hours by car with several toilet stops. but it's inevitable especially if you want to explore beautiful sri lanka as a whole. managed to catch a rare glimpse of the leopard too during the safari visit!

  9. Laudya Lee
    5 out of 5

    :

    breathtaking tour! sri lanka is a wonderful place to visit! I was there for my honeymoon. my hubby loves the safari park! we manage to take a glimpse of the elusive leopard! it was all worth while! thank you for arranging a memorable trip for the both of us!!!
