Twelve travel and food bloggers from USA, UK and Italy arrived in Sri Lanka on 9 August for a familiarisation tour hosted by the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB). 

The bloggers arrived in Sri Lanka for a 10-day press trip and set out in two groups on a tour around the country, with one group covering Sri Lankan cuisine and the other group covering travel activities of the country. 

The food bloggers observed Sri Lankan cuisine and food sources from around the country in places from renowned restaurants in Colombo to village kamathas in other towns. They explored the local street food and markets at Galle Face and Hikkaduwa, learned about Ayurveda food in Kalutara, prepared local food with farmers at Wellawaya, experienced tea manufacturing in Nuwara Eliya, visited the fisheries market in Negombo and engaged in many similar activities to showcase the beauty of country.

Bloggers dedicating their time on travel blogging, covering travel and adventurous activities Sri Lanka offers. The group started  off with a city tour in Colombo, took part in rafting, hiking , sightseeing waterfalls and the preserved colonial buildings in Nuwara Eliya, temple visits and yacht rides by the beach before ending the tour with a memorable seafood barbeque by the beach in Negombo.

SLTPB will continue to host familiarisation tours for Bloggers as the program is a success and has resulted in considerable media coverage from the bloggers’ countries through their blog posts in websites and social media. SLTPB has received great support from the hotels and service providers involved in the tour.
