Sri Lanka focus to Russia to increase numbers in tourist arrivals

Sri Lanka's embassy in Russia has compiled a tourist guide book in Russian language to promote Sri Lanka among the Russians as a tourist destination.

The tourist guide book contains the country profile, places to visit in Sri Lanka, information about accommodation facilities, available leisure activities and emergency numbers etc., Sri Lanka Tourist Authority sources say.

Sources further says that the embassy has also compiled two audio CD’s regarding 21 unique places in Sri Lanka, which the visitors can explore.

Sri Lanka promotes tourism among non-Western European nations as the country has politically failed to attract the high spending tourists of the developed Western nations.

The operators in the tourist industry lament that the tourists that come from lesser developed countries spend very little. They blame the government for chasing the number instead of quality of the tourist market.
