Why this country is fast becoming the new place to be

I fell in love with what little I saw of Sri Lanka faster than I did that one dude on Tinder who knew the difference between “their” and “there”. And — just like it was with Brett, 27, from Manly — I wasn’t the only one to have fallen.

Sri Lanka’s tourism revenue has surged more than eightfold since the end of the civil war in 2009 and by the time I landed there I realised I knew nine separate people who were coincidentally in Sri Lanka at the same time.

The country is now so popular with Millennials that every single backpackers hostel is now full of people talking about how much better it was before “the tourists found out about it”.
