People who visit Sri Lanka can enjoy sunny weather at any one of its great beaches, according to a representative of the country's tourism board.UK and Ireland director for Sri Lanka's promotion bureau, Sanjika Perera, said a massive resurgence has been seen in the numbers of individuals flocking to the island.
"For everybody, especially from the European nations, the primary reason they go is sun, sea and sand," he explained.
However, sun worshippers are not the only ones who can benefit from this Indian Ocean location, Mr Perera commented, as Sri Lankan holidays also offer great cuisine, wildlife and cultural options.
The food is particularly unique, he added, with gourmets able to experience a mix of Thai and Indian influences.
It follows news from Sri Lanka's Tourism Development Authority that the country saw 48 per cent more tourist arrivals in February, when compared with the same month last year.
