Government data indicates that tourist arrivals in Sri Lanka have risen 16.8 percent year-on-year in September, with the number of foreign visitors rising for the 65th straight month since a nearly-three-decade civil war ended in May 2009.

Total arrivals hit a record high in 2013, while revenue from the country’s leisure sector also hit a peak.

The government expects new record high arrivals this year, while the revenue in the first nine month of 2014 has already surpassed the annual revenue recorded last year.
