Over 2500 years of prosperous cultural heritage Sri Lanka consists of many archaeological heritage places throughout the country like ancient secrete cities like Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Dambaniya Temple, Temple of the Tooth Relic Kandy, Sri Padaya(butterfly mountain) and many more.

In 2009, after 26 years of civil war between the Sri Lankan army and the liberation of Tigers of Tamil Eelam, Sri Lanka entered a process of reconstruction and rapid development projects like Southern Highway construction. Now Sri Lanka is fully recovered and safe from war though there are some wounds remain in hearts. On Easter Sunday 2019 Sri Lanka had to face a terrible bomb attack targeting three Christian churches and three high-end hotels. It became the most lethal terrorist incident in the country’s history. The present Sri Lanka President and the national forces fully secure the country. The situation is now peaceful and Sri Lanka is once again safe to visit.

After the Covid-19 outbreak

COVID-19 spreads all over the world creating a huge loss of lives. In 2020, First World Countries like America and Italy are the most severely affected countries from this Coronavirus. Though their health facilities were well developed, they were not able to control the spreading of this virus. But a developing country like Sri Lanka is successfully controlling the spreading of Coronavirus with the collaboration of health care sectors, all military forces and Sri Lanka Police unlike other countries in the world. Sri Lanka reacted rapidly to early warnings of this virus issued by China and WHO authorities while most Western countries carried on unconcerned believing and even hoping this problem will remain only in China. Sri Lanka has been ranked 9th best country in the world for its successful immediate response on tackling virus. The health authorities instructed to close down all the international Airports in Sri Lanka on 19th of March 2020 until further notice. Sri Lanka will recover soon from this pandemic and all the Airports will open as soon as possible.

Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful and diverse islands on this planet. All tourists can experience the most fabulous landscapes, forests, lovely beaches and many more things once in a lifetime experience. As you all know, these days the most common problem you have “Is Sri Lanka safe to visit after the pandemic?” .Yes, without any doubt I can say Sri Lanka is the best place to relax and enjoy the holiday after this Coronavirus pandemic.
