Safety Sri Lanka

Theft from tourists is common in Sri Lanka, particularly in busy markets and hotel rooms, even if they are locked. Angling through open windows is a refined art and common practice. Consequently, never leave any valuables in your room; leave money and passports with reception and leave cameras and other important gear in a locked compartment in your room. Despite theft, Sri Lanka is not a place where you should feel unsafe or threatened.
