Sri Lanka tourism takes a good hard look at British tourist arrivals
Traditionally the UK has been an important market for Sri Lanka, generating about 18% of the total arrivals to Sri Lanka in 2008. The UK was the top tourist generating market for Sri Lanka, but lost its position to India in 2009. The UK held on to the No. 2 position until 2015, when it was relegated to the third slot by China, which climbed to the top. However, the UK still generates close upon 10% of Sri Lanka’s total arrivals.
