Sri Lanka has been welcoming visitors across the globe amidst the pandemic since the end of January 2021.

Following demand from the local market, Air Seychelles will this November establish connections with the South East Asian country by operating a special flight to the commercial capital of Sri Lanka’s largest city, Colombo.

Home to eight UNESCO World Heritage sites, boasted for its rich colonial heritage, the iconic areas of the Fort Station, the Red Mosque and the Khan clock tower are a must see when in Sri Lanka.

For adventurous shoppers looking for a unique experience, the lively Pettah floating market is the right place to go. Located in Colombo, built on wooden bridges on a waterfront, the market features 92 trade stores selling everything from shoes, clothes, electronics, appliances, jewelry and others at affordable prices.

Otherwise, for those looking to explore parts of the city not seen on a usual tourist trail, try to hire a rickshaw also called 'tuktuk' with a local driver for an incredibly fun way to beat the crazy traffic and experience the mix of diversity and modern elements of the vibrant city.

Sri Lanka is also an excellent destination for medical tourism. Renowned for the quality of its medical services, the wide range of extensively equipped and accredited medical facilities such as the Lanka. Hospitals operating with internationally qualified consultants and world-class nursing staff, delivers healthcare that is on par with global medical standards.
