  • Sri Lanka tops list of countries for travel destination in 2019

    Published on October 26, 2018

    Sri Lanka has been chosen as the best travel destination among the list of countries to visit in 2019, with Germany and Zimbabwe just behind.

    The projection done by Lonely planet said, Sri Lanka topped the list primarily because travel has become much easier there since the civil war ended in 2009.

    Matt Philips, destination editor at Lonely Planet said that during the civil war,  there were large tracts in the north that were completely off limits, but now there are new road and rail links, and new internal flights.

    He said, travel products had hugely evolved in Sri Lanka, and now include diverse opportunities beyond mere beach holidays, from eco-tourism and yoga retreats to visiting national parks.

    Tourists from India comprise the largest number of people visiting Sri Lanka.
