So here comes the list!

1.White or Light colour outfit.-Yes something  white. If you are visiting Buddhist or Hindu temples Like Temple of the tooth at Kandy, it's a life saver. Also, make sure it covers your body well.

2.Hat-Usually  almost every day is bright and sunny in Sri Lanka.A hat with a wider brim is one of the best ways to hide yourself from the bad boy up in the sky.

3.Scarf-This have multiple uses. You know lot of ways how it gonna be useful on the way right?!

4.Sunglasses-As I told you before, it's sunny and hot here .So a pair of sunglasses is a must.

5.Sun screen-Again it's something about the sun.(In Sri Lanka I think everything is about the Sun)That's how the thing going on in a country that never snow.:(

6.Shoes-Pack a comfy pair of shoe to wear in daytime especially as sometimes your feet won't bear the heat if it's too open to the sun.

7.flipflop-It's for the beach and for the evenings.

8.Lip balm-Don't forget to pack a good lip balm to protect your lips from heat.

9.Deodorant-It's hot so it must sweat!So make sure you add a deodorant to your packing list.

10.cotton or light clothes- Cotton or linen or light clothes are the best to wear in Sri Lanka.

 You might not visit in Sri Lanka in the rainy season.But I highly recommend you to come prepared for any situation, because the rain in Sri Lanka cannot trust.Ever.

12.Sweater-You must be surprised if Sri Lanka is sunny and hot what sweaters for? It's hot along the coastal line around Sri Lanka. But the middle part of the country-hilly region is cold and have really cold nights.

13.Mosquito repellent- Don't worry! Sri Lanka has no Malaria threats but the Dengue fever. Though the mosquito that bit you is harmless still the area may get itchy make sure to pack this too.

Have a look at this portable mosquito repellent without getting all these greasy oily smelly spray or lotions on your body.

I hope this list will help you to enjoy your time peacefully in Sri Lanka. Pack everything in the list and enjoy your time in Sri Lanka.
