According to the Sri Lanka Tourist Promotion Bureau, the country has seen a 16.9 per cent rise in August of this year in comparison to the same period in 2008.

Sri Lanka saw the highest number of British tourists in 2009 flock to the country this August, with an increase of more than 1,000 visitors when compared to the same month last year.

Sanjika Perera, UK director of tourism, said that it was great to see people have renewed faith in the safety of the country and the value for money it offers.

Figures from the Pacific Asia Travel Association recently showed increased travel demand to Sri Lanka, rising by 28 per cent when compared to last year.
