To quote Ms. Madubhani Perera, Director, Marketing, “Sri Lanka is one of the preferred destinations for Gulf tourists as we offer a distinctive, adventure-packed, eco-friendly, family-focused experience and offering. With our rich nature, heritage and culture, year-round schedule of festivals and special events, numerous parks and eco centers, luxury resorts and wellness centres, Sri Lanka has many reasons for GCC families to return to Sri Lanka again and again.”

 
Sri Lanka aims to double the number of tourists coming from the Middle East countries and achieve 20% increase from the region. Saudi Arabia makes up the largest number of GCC tourists to Sri Lanka followed by Oman and the UAE.
