The True Cost of your Trip to Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has made a name for itself as a tourist destination, earning the top spot on Lonely Planet travel destinations of 2019. However behind Sri Lanka’s beaches and tropical climate, lies a government with a long record of human rights violations lasting a 26-year-long civil war which has left the minority Tamil population marginalised and seeking justice.
