India remains top market of origin for Sri Lanka tourism

Published on : Wednesday, January 8, 2020

India remains the top sourcing market for Sri Lankan tourism with Indian tourists constituting 19 per cent of total tourist arrivals to the island nation in 2019.

 

The latest data released by Sri Lankan Tourism revealed that 3,55,002 Indian tourists visited Sri Lanka last year against a total arrival of around 1.91 million. Over 48 thousand Indians visited Sri Lanka during December ’19 alone including over a thousand by sea route.

 

The tourism sector in Sri Lanka suffered a huge setback following Easter Sunday attacks last April and the annual tourist arrival dropped by 18 per cent since 2018 figures.

 

India, United Kingdom, China, Germany and Australia were Sri Lanka’s top five international tourist generating markets last year. Sea beaches and religious places connected to Ramayana circuit remain the top attractions for Indian tourists.
