I will be in SL in 2 more days...Cannot wait!!! How is the climate there now? Anything new that you want us to be prepared for? What are the things that my wife and I ned to avoid when we are there? What is the average tipping amount in LKR? does the 10% rule count or is 10 LKR considered a common number at dine in's etc? so Let me get this busses to bentota from the airport...i have to come to Colombo City and then take a bus. I just need to keep the conductor informed as to where I want to get down....right?

    Weather last couple of days has been sunny with a few showers.

    Tipping 10% is OK, but tipping LKR 10 is almost an insult. If you don't want to tip minimum LKR 20-50, don't tip.

    Only few Matara bound buses from the airport will pass Bentota. Otherwise it's bus from Katunayake to Colombo and change bus there.
