Sri Lanka endeavours

Sri Lanka is stepping up efforts to develop its tourism industry in line with its expanding economy.

As part of this effort the government has chosen Passekudah Bay as a special tourism development zone, especially because of its pristine beaches and extraordinarily calm sea.

The government has allocated land for luxury hotels to build 800 hotel rooms with an aim to bring 2.5 million tourists by 2016.
