Addressing the Asian Marine Tourism Conference 2022 in Ningbo, China, Ambassador Palitha Kohona made a ringing call for Chinese tourists to visit Sri Lanka and enjoy it's unmatched range of attractions. It is expected that China will ease its Covid related travel restrictions in the coming months.
In addition to Sri Lanka's beautiful, palm fringed golden beaches, one could engage in diving around beautiful coral reefs and ship wrecks, kite surfing in a 40 km long lagoon, surfing at Arugam Bay, whale watching during the morning and mingling with majestic elephants in the afternoon, and also enjoy the island's bounty of sea food and the legendary Sri Lankan hospitality.
Dr. Kohona also discussed the potential for Chinese cruise ships to visit Sri Lanka with the vice president of the Chinese Cruise and Yacht Federation. Three million Chinese undertake cruise holidays annually.
