Sri Lanka ranked among top 10 friendliest countries in the world

From children to the elderly, the people of Sri Lanka are known for their love of visitors, and genuine desire to help - Magazine Condé Nast Traveller. The financial crisis hit Sri Lanka still occupies a place among the top friendliest countries in the world for 2022.

“On the south coast, set sail on a whale-watching expedition in Mirissa, shop the colorful boutiques of the fort city of Galle or shack up at the uber-luxe Cape Weligama hotel, occupying a cliff next to the ocean. Make the climb up to the Tea District, where precarious winding roads will lead you into the heart of the country's tea plantations, or, towards the center, climb Sigiriya Rock for views far and wide”- Magazine Condé Nast Traveller.
