The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) said today the situation in Kandy was fast returning to normal and tourists could resume their travel plans to Kandy.

It said in a statement that no violent incident was reported in the past 18 hours. “The Police curfew has been lifted,” the SLTDA said.

“Members of the tourism and travel industries worked with the local Police authorities yesterday to facilitate the issuance of passes to tourists who chose to move out of Kandy during the curfew,” it said.

It assured that the situation in Kandy had no impact on other parts of the country.

    But the damage is long term. This is going to keep away the high spending Middle Eastern tourists, and the season was just starting. Tourists will have to depend on the mercy of hippies from Europe who don't even spend 10 dollars a day.

    Wonder whether the Mahanayake's have not still woken up from their deep slumber similar to the way they have behaved in the past racist riots.

    Damage is done but our government had stopped before it had become worst let’s appreciate that and look in to how to fix things without complaining.

    Surely, thanks to the patriots who instigated communal violence, those tourists after their spoiled holidays. will now make their final departure never to return to Sri Lanka again,
