SL still top destination to travel - Lonely Planet

Sri Lanka is continuing to be the top destination for 2019 despite the Easter Sunday terror attacks, Lonely Planet one of the most popular travel magazines/ web site in the world, said.

Lonely Planet writer Caterina Hrysomallis said that the world should not give up on Sri Lanka. “While we don’t discount the fear many travellers feel, we should not allow events like this to deter us from continuing to explore, learn and break down stereotypes,” she said.

“The country has been upset, but continues to be an incredible place to visit. It still tops our Best in Travel for 2019.”

“At the present time, foreign governments are advising caution, but are not warning against travel to Sri Lanka,” Lonely Planet said.

The travel publication, maintained Sri Lanka as number one, while warning readers to check travel advisories of their governments before travelling to the island nation.

She said Sri Lanka deserves the top spot for its food, ‘epic train rides’, and scenic hills and beaches. Tourist arrivals to Sri Lanka fell 70 percent in May, amidst foreign governments warning against travel to Sri Lanka.
