In a post-Covid world our desire to travel will be as strong as ever, but many will be re-ordering their bucket list with their safety in mind, prioritising destinations where they feel there will be fewer people and lower health risks.
We are confident that Sri Lanka, which over the last few years has been featured regularly as one of the best travel destinations in the world, will remain on top of everyone’s list, as it will undoubtedly be recognised as one of the most low-risk choices for post-corona travel.
Here are our top five reasons why Sri Lanka is a safe choice for post-Covid travel:
- Proactive government guidelines
The Sri Lankan government have been incredibly proactive in taking measures to prevent the spread of the virus, and thus far these measures have proved to be extremely effective, with the country having a relatively low number of coronavirus cases. As well as controlling the current situation, the government are also looking ahead and have already announced future health and safety precautions to help safeguard tourists visiting the island.
On 10th August, Sri Lanka received the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp from the World Travel & Tourism Council in recognition of the comprehensive health and safety measures the government has proposed to safeguard tourists during their holiday.
- Nature of travel during a tour
On a tour of Sri Lanka with SriLankaInStyle, you will have a private chauffeur-guide for the duration of your trip. Unlike many other holiday destinations where internal flights or public transport are a necessary part of your itinerary, when traveling around Sri Lanka it is easy to avoid contact with others.
- Largely a rural destination
With the exception of a few relatively small cities, Sri Lanka is largely a quiet, rural destination, with much of the land given over for agriculture and wildlife conservation. Even its beaches, thought to be some of the best in the world, are largely untainted by tourism. Your entire tour can be built around stays in small boutique properties and private villas set in spectacular escapist locations where you will feel as though you have the whole country to yourself.
- More that just its tourist trail
Sri Lanka is so much more than its tourist trail. Despite being such a small island, there is an abundance of places to explore, and going off the beaten track offers travelers as much natural beauty and as many historical gems as the well-walked tourist trail – with the additional advantage of providing a glimpse into the island’s authentic local life and the chance to meet some of Sri Lanka’s most fascinating people through a range of unique experiences.
- A centre for wellness
Feeling in need of some R&R? So are we – and there is no better place to find it than Sri Lanka. The island boasts several luxurious retreats devoted to holistic healing through Ayurveda, yoga, meditation and nutrition. Get away from everyone and everything and nourish your mind and body, whilst soaking up the restorative peaceful atmosphere that permeates every corner of Sri Lanka.
