In Sri Lanka, tuk tuks roaming the streets is as common as mosquitoes and temperatures over twenty-five degrees.
A lot of the tuk tuks patrolling the streets are privately owned, unregulated vehicles, and you’ll do yourself a favour by not getting into one of those.
Alternately, you could even call for a tuk tuk via Fair Taxi, Budget Taxi or Online Cabs.
Most Sri Lankan women prefer to take a Mini or a car after dark, but a tuk tuk attached to a well-known company is fine as well.
This will let the driver know that somebody is keeping a tab on you.
