Even after the unfortunate Easter Sunday attacks, which was followed by a large number of booking cancellations by tourists, Sri Lanka still topped the Lonely Planet’s best in travel for 2019, a latest article published on the travel guide’s website said.  

 

 The article titled ‘Why I won’t give up on Sri Lanka and you shouldn’t either’ said Sri Lanka was a country generally appreciative of tourism, after all the petite country has endured its fair share of hardships and the attacks in April 2019 just added to the list.   


“The toll on tourism has been tremendous on the island state. According to travel consultancy ForwardKeys, average net bookings to and within Sri Lanka fell 186% the week following the attack. While we don’t discount the fear many travellers feel, we should not allow events like this to deter us from continuing to explore, learn and break down stereotypes.   


“In recent weeks, countries have softened their travel warnings to Sri Lanka, including the UK. The country has been upset, but continues to be an incredible place to visit. It still tops our Best in Travel for 2019” it said.
