The total number of international tourist arrivals to Sri Lanka during April 2019 was 166,975.
Compared to April last year, there was a decline of 7.5% where the arrivals were 180,429, which is undoubtedly a direct consequence of Easter Sunday Attacks on 21st April.
Last month, the largest source markets for tourists in the Island nation were the UK, followed by India and Germany.
