Sri Lanka Tourism

In this Friday, May 10, 2019, photo, lounge chairs lie on a deserted beach in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka was the Lonely Planet guide’s top travel destination for 2019, but since the Easter Sunday attacks on churches and luxury hotels, foreign tourists have fled. Hikkaduwa, in the south west, used to be top tourist attraction for the strong waves that were perfect for board-surfing and sparkling clear waters perfect for snorkeling. Today, of the 27 hotels, a very few are still open while most of others along with the eateries lining the six kilometer stretch of palm-fringed beach, are closed. (AP Photo/Eranga Jayawardena)
