Sri Lanka named world’s best island by Australian publication Escape

Despite facing many internal and external challenges, Sri Lanka has been voted as the world’s best island by popular Australian publication Escape.
The publication has reportedly stated: “It was named Lonely Planet’s top destination for 2019, but the Easter Sunday terror attacks in Sri Lanka saw the country’s booming tourism industry suffer tremendously. Now things are on the mend, with a new world number one ranking – and this time it’s voted by travellers. Sri Lanka has been named number one in Travel + Leisure’sWorld’s Best Islands – a reader-generated list based on activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness and value.”
The publication ranking Sri Lanka as the number one destination has reportedly stated: “It may be only a smidge bigger than Tasmania, but what Sri Lanka lacks in size, it makes up for in its variety of attractions. The coastline is home to several marine national parks making it every diver’s dream, while the island’s perfect waves and crowd-free waters lure its surfers. 

“The inland is home to cascading hills of tea plantations and wildlife parks, inhabited by elephants, monkeys and leopards. Sri Lanka’s flavourful cuisine continues to draw in the crowds, as does its luxurious accommodation offerings.”

OSL take:

Sri Lanka has once again made it to the top of a travel publication as a tourist attraction. The island has also been listed as a must visit destination by several leading global travel publications. Sri Lanka has also received the safety and hygienic certification that would increase Sri Lanka’s appeal as a tourist destination once foreign travel recommended after the global Covid 19 pandemic. Sri Lankan authorities have also carried out special promotional campaigns to further boost the island’s image as a travel destination. All this has expanded the business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry.
