Besides, Sri Lanka was named the leading adventure tourism destination in the world. Based on online voting process cast by industry leaders and travel professionals, winners were selected. Sri Lanka has been slowly coming up as one of the most interesting travel alternative to Thailand, because of its exotic beaches, wildlife safaris and adventure tours.

In addition with its native land mammals like elephants, leopards and wild buffalos, the marine surroundings of the island make the destination one of the best kept secrets for whale and dolphin watching. The country is equally known among adventure junkies for enjoying top-notch surfing and diving experiences, jungle treks, hikes and elephant-riding and rock-climbing adventures.

The Oberoi Udaivilas in India, which took home the title of Asia’s leading hotel 2017 and The Peninsula Hong Kong, which was graded Asia’s leading luxury hotel 2017 were other big winners of the night.
