Having enjoyed strong sales for its 2016 tours, the premium travel operator is expecting interest in this exotic spice island to grow amongst Australian guests over the next twelve months.

Commenting, Travelmarvel General Manager David Cox said, “Sri Lanka is really opening up to overseas tourism. So much so that Colombo was named Asia Pacific’s top fastest growing tourist city in 2015*.

“With incredible experiences, history and wildlife, along with pristine beaches and eight World Heritage sites, it’s easy to see the appeal.  Investment in infrastructure is also increasing and the agents we hosted there on a recent famil were really impressed,” he said.

Chloe Boam, General Manager at Flight Centre Knox was one of the agents who travelled to Sri Lanka with Travelmarvel:

“Australian clients will love Sri Lanka.  It was one of the best famils I have been on and as a result I will certainly be sending my clients to see Sri Lanka for themselves,” she said.

Showcasing the destination in its new India River Cruising brochure, Travelmarvel is offering a 12 Day Splendours of Sri Lanka tour. Prices for 2017 departures are from $4,295** per person, twin share.
