Sri Lanka has a lot to offer for tourists

By S.H.Moulana

It is not strange to see that Sri Lanka's central region too is flooded with tourists from China, Middle East and neighboring India.

We learnt this truth during our short stay in Kandy last weekend at a popular spot known as Mandarin Hill Residence.

It was no way short of anything a five-star facility could offer. Situated on a hill top from where you could have a view of Adam's Peak a place venerated by all faiths living in Sri Lanka.

Although this property is looked after by a lady in the absence of the owner, she has proved a real role model for anyone who wants to venture in this field of hospitality. In short she was a housekeeper, chef and even a guest relation officer.

While staying in this remarkable place my nephew, Rizvi, guided us to another super attraction solely developed by a Chinese friend of his, Stanley.

Stanley took us around to show his property extending over 100 acres or more and the projects in progress now. No doubt it is a fabulous one and really amazing.

A section of which is already in operation and known as Yale Kandy. It is attracting large number of Chinese tourists.

As much as the sandy beaches of Sri Lanka can offer in the south the central part of the country too can give much pleasure to the tourists with its scenic beauty.

We strongly believe that the central government of Sri Lanka should give immediate attention to improve the road ways to upcountry in keeping with what it has been done in the south.

All the pleasure one derives from a short stay in the hill country is lost on his way back to the capital by a laborious trip which takes five to six hour during. This could be easily cut down to half with good roadways.

We hope the authorities will take this matter seriously. Anyway we don't think this issue will keep the eager tourists away from visiting this ever green part of Sri Lanka.
