Top travel website TTG reports that Sri Lanka tourism bosses are throwing their weight behind plans to capitalize on the amazing wreck diving to be found around our island coast.

The upmarket Jetsetters travel weblog and YouTubeTV channel is extolling Sri Lanka’s first ever man-made nature reserve and eco-luxury resort—Jetwing Vil Uyana at Sigiriya.
