Dear all! I am hoping to visit Sri Lanka in August/September 2014 together with my 16-year-old daughter. Feeling responsible for her safety I want to be very sure I am not taking any unnecessary risks.
- We will be touring the island for 12 days with a car and driver, doing the usual touristy things. I guess that should be no problem.
- Then I was planning on spending a week on the east coast, probably Nilaveli, in a guesthouse. During this week we will be on our own, and we would not like to feel confined to our guesthouse. Will we be safe, or would it be advisable to stay in a hotel and not leave the hotel grounds unaccompanied?
I know this question has been asked before, but a report on the German tripadvisor site plus the increasingly warning tone of the website of the German Foreign Ministry have made me uncertain about whether / where to go.
I would very much appreciate feedback, especially from female travelers who have travelled Sri Lanka / the east coast recently.
