Discover Sri Lanka 27th March


We are booked to go on the above trip, its our 3rd exodus trip. 1st 2 were excellent, so very much looking forward to it.

Is there anyone else booked on this trip ?

I took pounds and changed half of what I had at the airport on arrival in Sri Lanka (good rate) - be sure to ask for some smaller notes as they will give you lots of 1000 & 2000 notes which some places can't change.  Roshan will accept payment for activities in Sterling or Rupees.  I think a couple of people used cash points on our trip, but you are not always in big towns so I personally wouldn't rely on it, tell Roshan if you are running low on rupees and need a bank so he can tell you next place with a cash point/money changer.  All hotels offer safe deposit boxes so you don't have to carry all your cash around with you.

Re hotel buffets etc, most nights you have no choice but to eat in the hotel - either buffet or a la carte as you are not in the town.  The food on the whole was excellent, lots of variety and was always fresh - yes even the buffets.  I don't eat shellfish and had no problems, asked for Nasi Goreng without the prawns etc.  The only place I can remember that we didn't stay in the hotel for dinner was in Kandy.


Hi Everyone,

What times does the group flight leave and who are you all flying with?  I think it is a similar time to my flight.  If it is then at least I can maybe meet some of you guys and say "hello" before my long flight alone (boo hoo!!).  I leave from terminal 3 of Heathrow at 20.30 with Qatar airlines-so if you see a brown haired girl with a grey day rucksack Karrimor make, probably weaing a black fleece-talking to herself then feel free to say hi!!

Nearly there!!!



Hi Emma!

The group flight is with Sri Lankan Airlines and it leaves terminal 4 at 9.25pm. Given the different departure terminal I'm not sure we will get to meet you before hand. Although I will be sure to speak to any girl fitting your description that happens to be talking to themselves just on the off chance that you decided to visit terminal 4. In fact, I have a lot of time at Heathrow so perhaps I will tour the terminals! Do you think you'd get a decent pub crawl out of the pre-security bars at Heathrow?
