A leading travel magazine in Britain “Condé Nast Traveller” has nominated Sri Lanka as one of the top five destinations to watch in year 2012.
The travel experts of the magazine predict that Sri Lanka will be among the hottest new holiday destinations for the travelers in the coming year.
Sri Lanka has been placed third in the list of destinations ahead of Britain, Australia, Abu-Dhabi .
Tag-lining Sri Lanka as “The coasts less travelled” the writer remarks that ”Although the north and east coasts are undeveloped, their natural beauty is unspoiled. You can find yourself the only tourist in the traditional villages, and the only person on some of the country’s most beautiful beaches. Indeed, those beaches on the east coast have fine sand and calm, clear waters, unlike the surf destinations on the west. This does, of course, mean top-class accommodation is still limited - but for many, finding charming guesthouses or rustic beach huts is all part of the adventure; and being first to discover a place never loses its thrill.”
Sri Lanka Tourism has recorded the highest ever arrivals to the country in 2011 and targets 2.5 million tourist by year 2016.
