Sri Lanka among the 25 hottest destinations this year_ Traveller

Sri Lanka is ranked second in the 25hottest destinations to travel recommended by Traveller, Australia. 2023 is shaping up to be a bumper year for travel.


You would have heard a lot about Sri Lanka in 2022, and barely any of it would have been good. This is a country that went through a turbulent period of political upheaval, with critical shortages of food, fuel and electricity, and many travel plans had to be cancelled because of it.

Now, things are looking up for Sri Lanka: a new government has stabilized the economy, and life has begun returning to normal.

This is great news for Sri Lankans and their economy as well as for potential first and repeat visitors. Those who love this country can support it through tourism, and the experience on offer is much the same as it always was.

The food is still incredible (and vastly underrated), the cultural sites amazing, and the likes of Galle and Kandy as charming as they ever were. See
