Customer Review

on 13 August 2013
Just returned from Sri Lanka, got the book as I have used it in the past in Sri Lanka and they have been fine. However this one is out of date...even though it was released in May. The prices are scarily out of date. For Hostels and guest houses add about rs. 1000 per night. For restaurants add between rs. 300-500 per person at most places. And this isn't just down to inflation. This book isn't all terrible. The reviews they give on major sites are useful. For government run places you don't blame them being the wrong on price. But they give enough information about the history of the places. I don't know who did the hill country as Kandy and Nuwara Eliya guides are awful, the south is pretty poor as well to be honest. And Colombo could have been much better. I assume that the people in this book hired locals to give their views of places as they don't appear to have stepped into places. The bus information and general travel information is very helpful though.
I just feel if they put in a little bit more effort it could have been much better.
