Mistakes expats make in Sri Lanka

Hello everyone,

Did you make any mistakes when you first moved to Sri Lanka? What were they?

How did you address your mistakes? Did you learn anything from them?

With hindsight, what would you do differently?

Are there any tips you could give future expats in Sri Lanka to help them avoid these kinds of mistakes?

We look forward to hearing from you!


To avoid to make mistakes - use your brain ! If people notice that you believe everything they say, you are lost.
