Good detailed road map of Sri Lanka to purchase

Could anyone please let us know the best detailed road map in English and Sri Lankan to buy to drive to self drive in Sri Lanka please. Newest one out there. We found one online to purchase for $7- from April 2012 so far. Last year we self drove in Morocco & prepped a head and had a great road map, but some roads were missing on it. We would like one with tourists hot spots and interesting visas, & things to see would be great too on the map.

Thank you

Hi there,

Should actually refuse to advise as we think selfdrive there for a non-local is suicidal, but okay, this time...

Good ones can be found in the local larger bookshops. We use 1:250000 road atlas by Sarasavi Publications. No idea whether it can be found online...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

I use the Rough Guide map, 1:500,000, when bicycling around SL, backed up by the Sarasavi road atlas mentioned above which I bought in Galle some years ago but which is now a little dated. Both show places of interest etc.
