Sri Lanka has again been featured as one of the leading destinations for leisure travellers in the UK by Emirates.
An exclusive luxury holidays brochure produced by Emirates for the UK market devotes 12 pages to Sri Lanka, one of 14 destinations featured in the 2012 edition.
Produced by Emirates Tours UK, the tour operating arm of the airline in the UK, the glossy catalogue titled ‘2012 Exceptional’ describes the island as ‘a land bursting with colour, energy and history.’
The Sri Lanka section provides a description of the country’s many attractions, historic sites, cultural heritage, wildlife, hill country and beaches, and features 12 hotel properties in the Cultural Triangle, the hill country and the western and southern coasts.
It offers a wide choice of customised tour packages as well as an eight-day tour labeled ‘Essential Sri Lanka’ priced between £ 1,759 to £2,429 per person and an 11-day privately-guided tour titled ‘Discover Ceylon’ from £ 2,359 to £ 3,255 per person.
Emirates Area Manager for Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Chandana de Silva, said, “The latest Emirates Tours UK catalogue is a demonstration of the commitment of Emirates to promote travel to Sri Lanka, a destination the airline has served for 26 years.” He said the brochure is targeting high-end travellers and is in addition to the annual ‘A World of Choice’ catalogue produced by Emirates Holidays, which also features Sri Lanka.
