Sri Lankan Helpful Drivers
Many drivers will offer to accompany travellers the whole trip if possible – why not – they have a guaranteed customer for a week.
Whilst there is nothing wrong with that, make sure you go where you want to go. Some drivers will be encouraging you to make some extra stops along the way. If you really want to delay your journey, then do so on your terms, it is very tempting to visit the spice garden, herbal remedies, sculptures, clothes shops, tea rooms and Ayurveda treatments.
If you are offered unplanned stops, you can always tell your driver you’ve already visited one – thank you.
