And is there a lot of scammers/dishonesty? Getting scammed is always a risk when travelling in Asia, and in some touristy areas you get hassled by people selling you souvenirs etc. Is this a big problem in the tourist sites in Sri Lanka, especially if you are not Indian/Sri Lankan in appearance? I'll be travelling alone. Also is petty crime, like theft, pick-pocketing a major problem in Colombo, Kandy.etc?
