Best time for Aussie travellers to explore Sri Lanka
RECENTLY launched brand India & Beyond has been perfectly timed to take advantage of new direct flights from Australia to Sri Lankan by Sri Lankan Airlines.
The new brand introduced by renowned destination specialist Beyond Travel, has a range of new private tours throughout Sri Lanka, as well as packages to mountain and coastal retreats.
The re-introduction of daily direct flights to Sri Lanka on the Melbourne – Colombo route begins in October this year which will provide better accessibility to a year-round holiday destination.
Bryce Crampton, GM sales and marketing, Bryce Crampton said, “This new service makes Sri Lanka a much more accessible for a growing number of Australians showing interest in Sri Lanka.
It will seriously cut travel times between the two countries and provide better connections with other forms of transport used for tourist in Sri Lanka.’
He added that “Sri Lanka is certainly shaping up as a new hot spot for Australians due to its broad appeal including family holidays and romantic getaways along the beautiful coastline, packages for food lovers and those seeking culture and history through to wildlife tours and adventure holidays, there really is something for everyone”.
Confirming Mr Crampton’s thoughts are the results of the recent World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia 2017, in Shanghai where Sri Lanka took valuable honours.
Sri Lanka won the honour of leading destination for the region, an award that reflects a country’s range of tourism products and services. Sri Lanka was also named the leading adventure tourism destination.
