Sri Lanka holidays 'more popular'

Article content

9 November 2009

An increasing number of people in the UK are taking Sri Lanka holidays, it has been noted.

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Charles Starmer-Smith stated that tourism to the country is beginning to pick up.

He remarked: "The number of visitors from Britain is 16 per cent higher than it was last autumn."

Furthermore, new areas opening up in the future could attract even more visitors, Mr Starmer-Smith added, with Yala National Park "back on the … map" and proposals to develop resorts to the north in Nilaveli, Arugam Bay and Trincomalee.

According to the travel specialist, Sri Lanka holidays are also good for those looking to help local communities, as money spent in the region can go towards tsunami relief funds and charities.

In recent news, Wanderlust travel magazine noted that the country has recently launched 50 new tuk-tuks painted in traditional Sri Lankan styles for tourists visiting the region to get around.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19449389-ADNFCR
