By now I hope you’ve been able to check out part 1 of my Sri Lanka travel guide. Today I am going to pick up where we left off in Ella, which had to have been on of my favourite places on the whole trip and from the photos, I think you will see why?
Once we arrived in Ella, we jumped in a tuk tuk, huge suitcases and all and headed straight to our hotel. Tuk tuks are by far one of the fastest ways of getting around anywhere in Sri Lanka, but there are some things you should know.
First, try to get tuk tuks that are on meters, these are a lot cheaper and are easily found in big cities like Colombo but small villages & towns not so. Second, Tuks tuks should cost anywhere between 50 – 90 rupees for every 5 minutes of the journey. So before you get in any tuk tuk first ask how long it will take to get there and how much using the above as a cost guide. And finally, don’t be afraid to haggle!! We weren’t brave enough to try this until the end of our trip and soon learnt we could have saved ourselves a lot of money.Details
