    50% chance your hotel/GH rooms will have these outlets; a slightly modified Lankan version (2 round pins fit by fooling the 3rd 'earth' pin).
    The other 50% chance is for UK-style outlets with 3 square pins. A standard travel converter can handle that, if you're lucky the hotel/GH will have that for lending also...

    All the best,

    Hello - you might find this a useful site on your travels.
    It gives information about the type of plugs/sockets in use around the world. If you click on the Blue Letter (D in the case of Sri Lanka) it takes you a bit more information.

    Hope this helps a little.
