If there is something you will hear from travelers in Sri Lanka is how costly visiting some of the sites are. Dreamy hotels and impressive heritage with and equally impressive(read expensive) price tag can intimidate the budget traveler. While there are some must visit sites in Sri Lanka like the cultural triangle and beautiful national parks you need to be cautious if you are on a tight budget. We being cash strapped as always worked towards keeping our costs low. We looked around for free things to do in the country along with not so expensive ones. These are as awesome as the cultural triangle and let you experience the Sri Lankan way of life. For people who think Sri Lanka's attractions is too expensive for their pockets these should be high on your list.
