Sri Lanka among Forbes top ten coolest places to visit in 2015


Sri Lanka has been listed as the top ten coolest countries in the world to visit in 2015 by the Forbes magazine.

Sri Lanka is placed in the 10th position in ´The Ten Coolest Places to Visit in 2015´ in the magazine´s latest edition contributed by scribe Ann Abel.

“Sri Lanka offers tremendous value but is still often overlooked. The Aman Resorts here are as pampering as those elsewhere, but for a fraction of the cost. Absolute also arranges insider experiences such as a tour of the secret gardens of Galle Fort with author Juliet Coombe. But the main draw, Gaddis says, is the wildlife: Elusive leopards, wild elephants, boar, sloth bears and dazzling bird life from peacocks to hornbills roam this surprisingly diverse island. We can’t think of another country that has the variety of experiences that Sri Lanka does,” he adds. Yala National Park has been the longtime go-to, but he’s excited about the reopened Wilpattu National Park, which had been closed for years due to the civil war, and where, he says, many guests are able to enjoy their safari in private,” Abel delineates in the magazine.

Iceland, Morocco, Vietnam, America, Tasmania, Colombia, Japan, Argentina and the Sri Lanka are in the list of ten destinations
