‘DailyCandy’, a reputed US based website on travel and tourism writes of the many delights enjoyed in destination Sri Lanka in an article titled ‘Sri You Around DailyCandy Goes to Sri Lanka’ reaffirming many of the thoughts expressed by New York Times travel writer Lionel Beehner.
New York Times, in its travel section of the 10th January Sunday issue has nominated Sri Lanka as the ‘Best Destination’ to visit in the year 2010.
‘The 31 Places to go in 2010’ was a travel guide to all their readers and NYT has described Sri Lanka as the top place to visit over the popular destinations like Thailand, India and Costa Rica etc.
‘DailyCandy’ says ‘The civil war is mostly over, and Sri Lanka is now stable and safe and as beautiful, tropical, and friendly as ever. The conflict was primarily in the north, and our itinerary will have you roaming the south for adventure (elephant safaris), history (colonial fort towns, old Buddhist temples), rain forests (and mountains and tea plantations), and gorgeous beaches. It’s pretty much the best place we’ve ever been’.
It goes on to describe Sri Lanka and how to get here from the US “The island is far from everywhere, so you’ll want to stay about ten days. Jet Airways flies from the U.S. to India and connects to Colombo.’
