balance, online
strength and a whole lot of courage. Surfing usually brings pleasure and excitement to the surfers and most importantly the watchers. But no matter how talented and courageous the surfer gets, there is one vital need for surfing. That is a picturesque beach with the right wave conditions.

                                      Beaches that are suitable for surfing are not frequently found around the world. The Arugambay beach properties, situated along the Eastern coastline of Sri Lanka is known as one of the best beaches of the world suitable enough for surfing. To prove the point, there was an international surfing contest commenced in Arugambay on the 30th August 2011 with the participation of more than hundred surfers for more than twenty countries around the world.

                            Tourists are attracted mostly to Arugambay because of the surfing factor. But the whole Eastern seaboard has a lot of tourist attraction in addition for the surfing. Pasikudah, Trinkomalee, Kuchchawelli and Nilaweli are some of the other attractions around the area. Tourists can come here to witness the never out lasting beauty of the Sri Lankan beaches, the calm and clear lagoons of the area and to enjoy the tropical sun instead of the cold climates of their own countries.

Most of these areas were engulfed with the war against terrorism for many years.

This definitely would narrow up the difficulties of travelling for a tourist from Colombo to Arugambay. As Arugambay is listed in the top ten most suitable surfing destinations of the world, there are a lot of surfing action coming up in days to came.

Sri Lanka’s post war development continues at a rapid pace. With new construction projects, renovation and development projects currently underway around the country, the face of Sri Lanka is changing. The latest addition to this change effect is the City of Slave Island.

              Slave Island is a highly commercialized Suburb located directly south of the Fort area in Colombo. The name “Slave Island” dates back to the colonial times when the Portuguese, Dutch and ultimately the British ruled the island. The slave island area used to house slaves mostly from Africa brought in as slave labor and in some cases as mercenary troops to help quell local rebellions and raids carried out by Sri Lankan kings. Today, Slave island is a commercial and recreation hub in western Sri Lanka with a multitude of commercial establishments such as hotels and shopping centers located directly within the slave island area.

It is due to this very reason that the Sri Lankan board of investment (BOI) has signed an agreement with a Pakistani real estate development company Imperial Builders (PVT) LTD. The agreement dictates that the company will be responsible for the renovation and development of 525 perches of land in and around the Slave Island area of Colombo.

The project dubbed “Slave Island Station Passage redevelopment Program” is set to commence with a USD 60 million investment by Imperial Builders. The project is aimed at construction of high density “Flat-Style” apartments as quarters for the families of employees of the railway department and as accommodation for families who lost their homes due to other development projects carried out in and around the city of Colombo. The project is also considered as another step in relocating communities living in shanties. These families occupying private and state property will be given modern apartments with more living space and better sanitation.

The chairman/director of the BOI, M M C Fernando stated that the project “Provides an insight into the important role that the BOI can play in addressing social issues in addition to developing the country.” He further went on to say that this project can not only bring about better housing for people living in shanty towns but also add to the potential of transforming the city of Colombo into a modern and well planned city, by the introduction of modern construction.

Sri Lanka has always been known as one of the best tourist destinations in Asia. With plenty of the three Ss’ i.e. Sun, buy
Sand and Surf available around the country all year round, this site
Sri Lanka was one of the most visited tourist hot spots in Asia. But after the beginning of the 3 decade long civil war that ravaged the country much of Sri Lanka’s former glory was lost. After the end of the war in 2009, Sri Lanka opened her gates once more to tourists from across the globe. Understanding how vital tourism is to Sri Lanka’s economy the government has initiated several new plans to create more hotels and other infrastructure facilities to support the industry as well as advertising campaigns aimed at drawing more tourists to Sri Lanka. Promoting tourism and investment is carried out at state level as well as private sector.

 

In one such attempt to promote Sri Lankan tourism the embassy of Sri Lanka in Tokyo Japan organized a high profile “Sri Lanka promotional seminar” consisting of more than 150 officials and personnel from various industries and sectors of the Japanese economy and government.

The seminar was held at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo with a host of prominent figures from Sri Lanka. Deputy minister of disaster management Dulieep Wijesekara and chairman of Sri Lankan Airlines NishanthaWickramasingha as well as Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda the Ambassador of Sri Lanka to japan were among those present at this prestigious event.

The chairman of Sri Lankan airlines, Mr. Wickramasinghe who was also the guest of honor stated that due to the recent internal and external developments Sri Lanka is in a good position to be an economic nerve center as well as a touristic hub in south and southeastern Asia. Mr. Wickramasinghe convincingly projected the unique and significant touristic features of Sri Lanka and pointed out that given the countries strategic position in the Indian ocean and abundance of natural resources and scenic beauty Sri Lanka is well poised and suited for such an influential position in south and southeast Asia.
