Sri Lanka Named Best Country To Visit In 2019 By Lonely Planet

Thanks to its reputation as a notable content provider for travel, Lonely Planet definitely can be trusted whenever it recommends places around the world to visit.

And for next year, it has already ranked the top country that should be checked out by travellers: Sri Lanka.

Here’s what it says on its website: “Sri Lanka is decidedly having its moment in the equatorial sun and change is coming swiftly.

“Already notable to intrepid travellers for its mix of religions and cultures, its timeless temples, its rich and accessible wildlife, its growing surf scene and its people who defy all odds by their welcome and friendliness after decades of civil conflict, this is a country revived.

“There’s now more than ever for families, adrenaline junkies, eco-tourists, wellness seekers and foodies of all budgets.

“Even the north and east, including areas previously off limits, difficult to reach or lacking in services, deliver new discoveries.”

Hmm… sounds promising!

Check out this video that shows 12 things you can’t miss while in the South Asian country:

The top ranking came almost 10 years after the end of the Sri Lankan civil war in May 2009, which lasted for almost 26 years.

Since then, the number of tourists’ visits has increased from 447,890 in 2009 to 2.1 million last year, a figure the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority hopes to double by 2020.

Some exciting things to see include stunning beaches and beautiful nature, the experience of travelling by rail, ancient ruins and temples, hiking and surfing opportunities as well as food (of course!).
