Sri Lanka has become a popular hotspot for Eid this year.

The Khaleej Times reports that although Asia, Thailand and Malaysia remain at the top of the list of tourists heading out overseas for the holy festival, countries like India and Sri Lanka are also getting some interest this year, particularly among the UAE nationals.

Mary Thomas, managing director of Bin Moosa Travel, says that mountainous areas, beaches and the backwaters in countries like Sri Lanka are proving to be an attraction for UAE nationals.

In Europe, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy are the sought-after destinations, while a considerable good amount of traffic is flocking to the US, particularly to Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.

Mohammed Abdulla Al Fahim of Al Fahim Group, has said for Emiratis, the favourite destination this season is Thailand. However, expatriate tourists purchased packages for serene, majestic and economically affordable tourist hideouts like Sri Lanka and Maldives. Other popular places, he said, are in Europe.
