In April 2019 Sri Lanka was subjected to a coordinated terrorist attack, during which three churches and three luxury hotels were the target of suicide bombers.
At that time, Sri Lanka was considered a tourist hot spot - it's a gorgeous travel destination and tourism was not only booming but growing.
After the bombings, or "the incident" as locals refer to it, tourism came to a halt.
With some customers cancelling their holidays to Sri Lanka and others concerned about their up coming trips, we (Nikki and Nicola) decided to take a visit ourselves to see what was going on, check if it was safe for our customers and take the opportunity to review our tours and hotels.
In October 2018,Vacations & Travel Magazine featured Travelbay and our Sri Lanka Private Tours - it seems they love Sri Lanka as much as we do. Below is a copy of the article they published ... enjoy :)
Sri Lanka is hot right now – literally and figuratively. Sri Lanka is warm year-round thanks to its location just a few degrees north of the equator. Not surprisingly, tourists and travellers have begun to discover this gem of a country. And it’s not just the weather that is drawing visitors in droves.
