Tourism industry has recovered strongly since war ended Yahoo Total Travel

 

Sri Lanka is one of the world's leading producers of tea. Tourism, another key industry, has recovered strongly since war ended three years ago, states Yahoo Total Travel in an article on travel in Sri Lanka.

It's where the word "serendipity" originated - to describe accidental discoveries of pleasant places or events.

That's the way it is in compact Sri Lanka - where paved but narrow roads wind from the coast into the hills, yielding unexpected delights around almost every corner, it further said.

It's been possible for decades to holiday on tea plantations. But only in recent years has tea sizzled. Plantation holidays, with many choices, are mostly based in decrepit mansions transformed into luxurious boutique hotels.

To-the-manor-born luxury doesn't cost the earth, because Sri Lanka remains one of Asia's cheapest destinations, the article adds.
