I was ready to book my last minute holiday to Sri Lanka having read some geat reviews about the country itself and what there is to do in the South West region of SL but came across a message posted by he Foreign & Commonwealth Organisation. On their website they highly advise against travelling to SL due to the terror threats and trouble they have been experiencing. It's making me think twice about booking my trip. Please see link below.
I guess for those of you that are soon to be travelling to SL, the advice is there and you just need to take extra care and be vigilant at all times.
This may appear a silly question to some but I'm wondering, for those that have visited SL this year, is it a place I should really avoid going to completely in the next couple of months? After reading all the great reviews, I'm still interested in visiting SL but undecided. If I am to book, I will be staying in Beruwela region.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
