COLOMBO (NewsRadio); Sri Lanka has been ranked among the top 20 destinations for travelers.
According to the 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards conducted by the popular and influential magazine Condé Nast Traveller, Sri Lanka has been ranked 17th best country for travelers.
Portugal, Japan and Thailand have been ranked the top three destinations for travelers according to the Condé Nast Traveller magazine.
Sri Lanka has been ranked ahead of countries such as Israel, Turkey and South Africa.
The Traveller magazine said the following about Sri Lanka:
This South Asian nation packs a wallop into a teardrop-shaped island that’s only slightly larger than the state of West Virginia: Think high-elevation tea plantations that are eye-vibratingly green, national parks where sloth bears and endangered elephants roam, and friendly surf towns that, if you squint, might remind you of Costa Rica or Nicaragua 10 years ago. (May we suggest Ahangama, with its indie-music venues, locavore cafés, and eco-boutiques?) And then there’s the capital city of Colombo, where you can shop for local spices, fly kites along the waterfront, or even charter a yacht. As Sri Lanka has worked in recent years to secure its spot as a global tourism contender, it has faced quite a few challenges, from the 2019 Easter Sunday bombings to the pandemic, and it’s looking to regain the trust of visitors with its trademark hospitality and good-nature—not to mention an ever-expanding roster of new hotels and resorts.
