Established in February of 2010, The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide is presently in its ninth cycle of publishing and over a very short period of time has gained a reputation for its content and high quality production values.
This reputation was justly rewarded, when The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide was adjudged Winner of the ‘Print Media Presentation on Travel & Tourism,’ in the Marketing Communication category, at the recently concluded Sri Lanka Tourism Awards 2010.
Commenting on the award, Sumanasiri K. Wettewa, Manager - Marketing & Business Development of IS Holdings, the publishers of The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide, said “Across the last eight issues, The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide has devoted all of its efforts, to uncovering and reporting the Sri Lankan tourism landscape, in a manner never before seen in the island. The combination of a unique size, insightful articles and eye catching photography, complemented by high quality production values, can be credited to our success.”
Published on a bi-monthly basis The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide is unique to the local tourism publications market given its size. Small enough to fit in your back pocket, handbag or even simply to carry around, The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide offers insightful articles on a range of tourism related topics, in addition to listings for all major hotels, restaurants, shopping and night life venue, to name but a few.
The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide also features contact details for many services/products that visitors would find useful and handy. From spas and salons to banks, embassies and hospitals, it is the vision of The Sri Lankan Pocket Guide to evolve into Sri Lanka’s first truly complete and accurate pocket listings guide.
