Sri Lanka promoting Ayurveda to boost tourism:
Tourism is one of the main income generating industries in Sri Lanka. Major tourist attractions are focused around the island's famous beaches, ancient cities, heritage sites, and the lush green tea estates in the central hills.
"Our tourism sector is a combination of nature and culture and Ayurveda touches both. With Ayurvedic tourism becoming a booming industry in the region, we are making concerted efforts to streamline it to attract more tourists to our country," Sri Lanka Tourism Board head Renton de Alwis.
