    The country is incredibly safe and with a bit of luck you should not experience any issues, I would suggest though that you travel with another westerner if you can. Whilst 95% of the time it is OK, all it takes is a group of boys drunk on Arak to see you and it could potentially be dangerous. that's the reality. Hope this Helps

    Hi Juliette - I visited Sri Lanka with my little sister (23) last August for 3 weeks and we never felt unsafe ! We actually saw a few women travelling on there own as well. If you are used to travelling on your one and are keen on it, go for it !!

      Thanks a lot for your answer. I already travel alone and it is not a problem for me, love it! But I read that you can be bothered in the bus... Have you? · (0 likelikes)

    If you stay on the mostly touristy places, I think you will be safe. Just don't wander around by yourself at night. There have been some recent incidences with foreign women, so you should be careful. Majority of the people are very helpful and speak English.

    Bon jour Juliette,

    Am also planning a solo trip from India to Sri Lanka during Christmas holidays probably for 10 days. Am looking for other solo travellers for company.i have one Sri Lankan friend in Colombo and maybe one friend will introduce me to other friends.Sri Lanka is relatively safe but having said that better to be careful after dark. Please do let me know in case your trip is still on!

    Regards

    Arif
