Michael L . Posted in Travel & Tourism 582 4 Comments

Planning on going to Sri Lanka soon for a holiday, and I’ve always wanted to visit the Tamil areas up north, does anyone here know if it safe for tourists yet?
Also, what is they’re understanding of english like? Will I have many communication probs? Thanks

    WELL ALL I CAN SAY IS SAFETY IS MERE LUCK…THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE BACK FROM AFGANISTHAN WITHOUT A SCRATCH AND PEOPLE WHO DIE OF GUNSHOT IS U.S ITSELF..

    YES THE PART IS A BIT AGITATED…ALSO A LOT HAS BEEN DESTROYED IN THEIR CIVIL WAR, BUT ITS A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY AND YOU CAN TAKE THE CHANCE…

    TAMILS GENERALLY(MOSTLY) SPEAK ENGLISH, ALSO UNLESS YOU ARE PLANNING TO BAG PACK, THERE SHUDNT BE A PROBLEM AS MOST CIVILIZED PARTS HAVE EVERYTHING WRITTEN UP IN ENGLISH AND ALSO (MOST)PEOPLE RESPOND BACK IN ENGLISH IF YOU SPEAK TO THEM IN ENGLISH…

    there is no problem going to north now is safe to go before going there find some place to stay because there lot of tourists (local and International) going there ,there will be no communication problems around 98% of sri lankans can Speak english.if you can go by road and come by air ,you can see lot of nice places .
    if you go to east you can go to white sand beaches .

    It may be safe for those non tamil speaking persons, Non Media persons and non UN representatives.

    Its safe as it can be anywhere else in the country now and as a tourist you will be fine. Most people speak/understand English so communication should not be too bad. ( If someone doesnt understand your accent, write it on a piece of paper, they will understand, so be prepared with a note pad lol just a tip)
