Sri Lanka 'is good value for money'

Article content

29 March 2010

People who visit Sri Lanka benefit from excellent prices and the opportunity to give something back to the local community, it has been claimed.

Sanjika Perera, UK and Ireland director for the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau, said the destination is very competitive with Mauritius and the Maldives in terms of cost.

According to Mr Perera, the country is also opening itself up more to tourists, with Yala national park now accessible and a range of aid organisations available for philanthropists.

"Now that the foreign office advisory has been taken away, a lot of people are now exploring Yala to see the elephant and leopard in their wild habitat," he remarked.

Arrivals have been expanding rapidly in recent years, the representative explained, with individuals increasingly exploring some of the lesser-known spots in the country.

A recent survey by Wanderlust and the Association of Independent Tour Operators revealed consumer confidence in travelling has soared, with 67 per cent of tour operators experiencing a rise in bookings.
