I'm coming to Sri Lanka later this month am am wondering about where to buy LKR? I've read on this forum that you are only allowed to bring 5 000 rupeees into the country but the posts were over 2 years old so I was wondering if that was still the case? Do they even bother to search people for money at the airport? Airports are usually notorious for giving lousy rates. Is this the case at Colombo airport? I'm coming from Suadi Arabia. Are Suadi Riyals widely accepted at money changers in Sri Lanka? I'll be staying at Unawatuna and will probably go to Galle a few times.
