Sri Lanka unable to encash its sustainable tourism scopes with tourists

Sri Lanka1tourists to Sri Lanka are more often than not targeted on sun, sea and sand and all of the efforts of the government for growing sustainability is being ignored by using travelers.

Tourism consultant Srilal Miththapala stated all the efforts of ecotourism are being overlooked via vacationers. though resorts keep their non-public beaches and there is lots of labor in developing eco-tourism however human beings get maximum attracted to the obvious sights in Sri Lanka. accommodations within the seaside regions are most in call for. searching after the fashion almost nine,000 lodge rooms exist already in the coastal areas and an growth of 12,six hundred is expected by means of 2018.



Miththapala is weary on whether Sri Lanka may be able to maintain its tourist arrival goals through 2020. He feels that although the country tourism is having outstanding plans but there are troubles in implementation and consequently there needs to be participation from the non-public zone via which appealing tourism possibilities may be more desirable.

“I suppose there are a variety of possibilities for investors. We want to set up a database of the informal sector to file what goes on with the turtle hatcheries, kite browsing, whale looking and water sports,” Miththapala stated. Social media and on line bookings are bringing in more vacationers to Arugam Bay and Kalipinya.
