A great result but.....

It was reported in the Sri Lankan Daily Mirror that there were over 200,000 arrivals in March 2024.

However the total was lower than the target set by the Sri Lanka Tourist Board.

The online newspaper reported that “In March, the island nation welcomed a total of 209,181 international visitors, a 66 percent year-on-year growth”.
