Sri Lanka records over 7,000 tourist arrivals to the country in first two weeks of October

Sri Lanka’s tourism authorities have recorded 7,096 tourist arrivals to the country between 1 and 13 October.
Sri Lanka’s Tourism Ministry has released the arrival figures.
According to industry sources quoted in local media reports, the number was the highest for a 13-day period, and if the trend continued, October was likely to record the highest monthly arrivals for this year.
September has so far witnessed the highest tourist arrivals of 13,547, increasing the first nine months’ figure to over 37,000.
The cumulative figure since the reopening of borders on 21 January till 13 October now stands at 45,413 tourists.
The majority of the tourists were from India, Kazakhstan, Germany, Ukraine, US, China, Canada, UK, France, and Russia.
“With the easing of travel restrictions, there is a growing interest from global travellers to visit the country,” Sri Lanka’s Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga has told the local media.

OSL take:

Sri Lanka continues to record a steady growth in tourist arrivals to the country. The increase in arrivals during the first two weeks of this month is indicative of the revival of Sri Lanka’s tourism industry. Sri Lanka has been listed as a must visit destination by several leading global travel publications and has also been slotted among the top 10 island destinations in the world. Sri Lanka’s tourism authorities have also launched a massive global promotional campaign to boost the tourism industry while exploring new tourism concepts in the country. The positive movements in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry have attracted foreign leisure and hospitality sectors to the island. Given the growing business potential in the tourism industry, foreign businesses/investors could explore opportunities.
