    Dear readers,I was a ,former local French guide working for Hemdugs Ztravel now Hemtours . When we arrived ( group) in a Hotel At Anuradhapura I saw a German Tourist with nearly 4 small boys and he was so buisy for taking one room and I questioned the front office manager if all these young minor boys were sharing the same room with this old man,he said telling me that it was not his problems since he has paid for all!!!!We should punish first the local guide and put this old French tourist in jailKathir

    Why are we focusing on this kind of cheap tourism to develop the country. There are so many other ways to make the country developed. Don't ruin the future of our next generation.

    Boy sex industry is one of the main reason for tourism in Sri Lanka, read in a journal article. Authorities have to take action. Parents need awareness that boys get sexually transmitted diseases if not pregnancy and this is not the way for reducing poor living condition.

    It may be the locals or the foreigners....very very hard core punishment should be given so that people will not be tempted to do such harm to little children....These people faces should be shown on all media and embarrassed !!!!!
