Sri Lanka - rough budget

Travel Forums Asia Sri Lanka - rough budget

Does anyone know what is a good estimate for a daily budget in Sri Lanka? Im budgeting on 30USD a day, would that be enough to cover food, basic accomodation, and some travelling?

Thanks much! ;)

I think that's a very tight budget but can manage if you choose the most basic of accommodation such as small lodges/ guesthouses and use only public buses or trains.

50-60 dollars a day would give you more breathing space and better options.
