Enterance Tickets

Hi All

What are entrance tickets charges to monuments in Cultural triangle ,gardens,temples in a standard itinerary of Srilanka trip as well as safari charges in Yala

Does these tickets include camera & video camera charges also

Is there any consolidated ticket for all places

Any concession for SAARC nationals

Mode of payment in $ or LKR

Thanks

You can check this link -

Most places will include camera and some you may need to pay extra. As far as I know the consolidated ticket for cultural triangle is no longer available.

In any of place you don't need to pay more for camera. but in kandy if you going to take video camera you have to pay extra. museum in polonnaruwa you can not take photos.

Hi

Thanks Tharindu, Hans_DEN, KrishSlL

I have read these links.

Only confusion is regarding consolidated ticket for s/s in cultural triangle & any concession for SAARC nationals.

Hi there,

1] No consolidated ticket, you don't see it in the list do you?

2] That's clearly in the list given in #2 IF there is SAARC discount, please reread it (3rd column)

All the best,

Hi ErikdR

Thanks.

On checking official website of Srilanka www.srilanka.travel , i found on travel tips that there is a consolidated single round ticket of $ 50 for Anuradhapura,Polonnaruwa,Sigiriya,Nalanda,Ritigela,Medirigiriya.

& no mention of concession to SAARC nationals

Even tour operators are denying for these both .

The round trip ticket for Cultural Triangle stopped a year or two ago due to abuse.

Yes and that official site is, well let's say it mildly, not a promotion for Lankan tourism. The Tourist Board is full of internal strifes and misaligned and outdated info; this BUG on the website is one example of it. Another one is that their website list of hotels and guesthouses, both in detail and in number, is half or less than the list in, you guessed it, the free 2 x per year booklet published by another department of this same Tourist Board...

Tnx,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
