Lonely Planet has a soft spot for our island paradise

Posted January 5, 2021

Sri Lanka continues to feature heavily on Lonely Planet as a must-visit destination.

With world travel grinding to a halt following the ascent of Covid-19, Sri Lanka’s tourism intake also has come to a standstill. The country that relies heavily on travellers for its economy will once again gather momentum as a popular destination when the world has recovered from the debilitating invasion of the novel coronavirus.

Sri Lanka was named by Lonely Planet as the No. 1 place to visit in 2019 but the deadly Easter Sunday attacks dealt a cruel blow, followed by the virus shutdown in 2020.

Now, with many people resorting to armchair travel, you can delight in the many feature stories on Lonely Planet.
