SRI LANKA POISED TO BENEFIT FROM BBC’S BLUE PLANET II FOCUS ON WILDLIFE AND SUSTAINABLE ECOTOURISM
Sri Lanka’s amazing biodiversity and the way we manage and nurture our wildlife will be a major draw for tourists seeking sustainable holidays, according to travel experts.
They believe that global ecotourism has been boosted by the BBC’s Blue Planet II wildlife documentary starring the renowned explorer and conservationist Sir David Attenborough.
According to the Mail Online, experts believe that Blue Planet II “has made people aware of their impact on nature”, while a quarter of holidaymakers plan to visit a new country in 2018.

2.3 MILLION TOURISTS AS SRI LANKA COURTS FRENCH BIG-SPENDERS WHO WANT ONLY THE BEST!
More than 2.3 million tourists visited Sri Lanka this year, the highest number ever recorded, as the industry gears up to target high-end big spenders in the south of France.
Tourism minister John Amaratunga told Chinese news portal Xinhua that the government will determine how many tourists came from each different country, and whether by air or sea.
He also said that “this year’s increase was a significant growth amidst spells of natural disasters such as floods that hit the country from time to time, and the outbreak of dengue epidemic also influenced the tourism industry this year”.
