CNN Travel includes Sri Lanka among list of ’20 best places to visit in 2020’

US based CNN Travel has reportedly included Sri Lanka along with 19 other countries as one of the ‘20 best places to visit for 2020.’
“Whether you want to relax on a remote island off the coast of Africa, ride Germany’s coolest trains or spot howling monkeys in South America, there is much to explore heading into a new decade in 2020,” CNN Travel has noted.
CNN Travel’s 20 places to visit in 2020, in alphabetical order:
Chile Lake District, Copenhagen, Denmark, The Dead Sea, Dominica, Estonia, Galway, Ireland, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kyushu Japan, New Caledonia, Parity and Ilha Grande, Brazil, São Tomé and Príncipe, St. Petersburg, Russia, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Vancouver Island, British Colombia, Washington, D.C., Wuppertal, Germany, Wyoming and Zambia.
Following is the quote CNN Travel had on Sri Lanka:
“The South Asian island nation of Sri Lanka is as ancient as it is beautiful; as complex a civilization now as at any time in its 2,000-year history. Despite recent tumult (the horrific terror attacks last Easter), Sri Lanka remains an essential destination, an epicenter of history, with relics and ruins, temples and palaces, wildlife running free.
“Sitting in the Indian Ocean off the southeastern tip of India, travelers may default to thinking of Sri Lanka as a beach getaway. But to truly immerse yourself in the country’s history, go inland and tour the country’s cultural triangle.
“Start in the ancient city of Polonnaruwa, which was the country’s capital in the 12th century. This UNESCO Heritage site is comprised of the ruins of Buddhist temples and dagobas (dome-shaped shrines) and is frequented by Buddhist monks in orange robes.
“A little over an hour to the west by car is the rock fortress, Sigiriya. Sometimes referred to as the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” this ancient volcanic formation that soars over 200 meters (656 feet) high was developed into a palace fortress in the latter half of the 5th century. Another UNESCO World Heritage site, Sigiriya is one of the most-visited landmarks in Sri Lanka.”

OSL take:

Sri Lanka’s tourism industry is one of the most fastest growing sectors in South Asia. The island has been listed as a must visit destination by globally renowned travel publications. Tourist arrivals to the country are on the increase and Sri Lanka has shown an impressive return to normalcy following the setback suffered in the Easter Sunday attacks last April. The continuous growth recorded by Sri Lanka’s tourism industry has further expanded the business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s tourism sector.
