One of the most biodiverse spots on the planet, Sri Lanka prides itself on its stunning wildlife and nature. However, it is not only nature which is diverse in Sri Lanka. With multiple cultures living closely together, the island is home to a range of celebrations and festivals throughout the year. Sri Lanka is also famous for its hospitality – and its fantastic cuisine. Before you are ready to go on an elephant riding trip around the island or explore the cultural triangle you should check whether you need any vaccinations. Our travel nurses are happy to help and they will make sure you get all the advice you need to stay safe during your holiday, too.
As with all destinations, it is essential that you see a travel nurse or pharmacist at least 6 – 8 weeks before you travel.
Traveller’s Diarrhoea is a common bacterial infection which often affects visitors in Sri Lanka. It can easily be treated with a short course of the antibiotic azithromycin. Superdrug Online Doctor provides a quick and easy service for traveller’s diarrhoea – so you can take an antibiotic with you in case you get ill.
