The pandemic has induced people to pay more attention to mental and physical wellbeing
Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga says that Sri Lanka has been ranked among the world’s top five Wellness Tourism Destinations this year, reported Daily Mirror.
As stated by the Global Wellness Institute, Sri Lanka ranked fourth for Wellness Tourism Destinations, while Bali tops the list.
It was reported that Sri Lanka is best for spiritual healing.
As a result of the pandemic, people have turned towards mental, spiritual, and physical wellbeing to help themselves cope with the unprecedented situation.
The Minister noted that there is increasing demand for Ayurveda and traditional medicine, which has existed in Sri Lanka for many years and the government has focused more on developing it.
The Minister commented on this during a meeting with a group of ministers at the French International Tourism Exhibition in Paris, France.
He told the representatives not to worry inn sending tourists to Sri Lanka, as the country has now recovered to become a safe travel destination.
According to Minister Ranatunga, more than 40,000 tourists have visited Sri Lanka since the country’s reopening in December 2020, and only 323 of them contracted COVID-19.
