We are proud to inform that “Lonely Planet”, one of the most reputed tourist guides in the world, named Sri Lanka as the “Best country in the world to visit in 2019”.
Ethan Gelber, author of the Lonely Planet “Best in Travel 2019” book writes: “Sri Lanka is decidedly having its moment in the equatorial sun and change is coming swiftly. Already notable to intrepid travellers for its mix of religions and cultures, its timeless temples, its rich and accessible wildlife, its growing surf scene and its people who defy all odds by their welcome and friendliness after decades of civil conflict, this is a country revived. There’s now more than ever for families, adrenaline junkies, eco-tourists, wellness seekers and foodies of all budgets. Even the north and east, including areas previously off limits, difficult to reach or lacking in services, deliver new discoveries.”
As a few countries issued Travel Advisories regarding Sri Lanka, it shall be pointed out that no incidents of violence or disruption has been reported following the recent events. The Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Austria is labelling Sri Lanka with Security Level 2, which is the second best possible, and is the same level as attributed to the United Kingdom and France.
