Sri Lanka still Lonely Planet’s top destination for 2019

Lonely Planet said Sri Lanka is continuing to be the top destination for 2019 despite the Easter Sunday terror attacks. "It still tops our Best in Travel for 2019," Lonely Planet says.
The travel publication, maintained Sri Lanka as number one.
The toll on tourism has been tremendous on the island state following the Easter Sunday attacks and the travellers should not give up on Sri Lanka.
"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."
The country has been upset following the Easter Sunday attacks, but continues to be an incredible place to visit.
The country has bounced back very quickly and tightened the security resulting in people getting back to their usual lives a lot earlier than the international communities anticipated. The tourism industry is now picking up and looks very promising.
Among the many things the guide says the travellers cannot miss in Sri Lanka are the food, incomparable beaches, especially the untouched beaches in Tangalle, epic train rides especially travel by train to Ella, the beauty of the hills, ancient city of Anuradhapura, elephants, City of Galle, Sigiriya and Sinharaja Forest Reserve.
