Is it safe to travel to and about Sri Lanka right now?
Yes, Sri Lanka is a safe destination for tourists from all over the world and in fact, many are already in the island making memories for a lifetime.
Over the past months, Sri Lankans frustrated with corruption sought to raise their voices against those responsible. Although this struggle was sensationally portrayed as widespread unrest, travellers within Sri Lanka and the tourism industry was not affected in any way. With the struggle fully ceasing, Sri Lanka is your perfect holiday destination.
I feel guilty about vacationing in Sri Lanka during an economic crisis. What should I do?
While it is true that Sri Lanka is currently undergoing an economic crisis and the daily lives of many people have been upended, tourism is one of the key drivers of recovery. The industry directly and indirectly employs over 3 million Sri Lankans and brings in critical foreign revenue to the island, central to overcoming the economic downturn and returning life to normalcy.
Vacationing in Sri Lanka at the moment may be the greatest helping hand you can give to putting the country back on track.
Will I be able to travel around Sri Lanka once I arrive in the country?
Sri Lanka experienced acute fuel shortages over the past months, resultant from the economic downturn. However, the public transport network of railways and buses are fully operational and can connect you from the airport to the commercial capital of Colombo and throughout the entire island to our family of hotels. In fact, most tourists prefer taking the trains around the country for the incredible experiences and stunning views they offer, especially in the hill country!
