another big problem is the lack of toilets: it's hard to enjoy any tourist attraction if every time you need to take a piss you have to run back to your hotel room

Dear Gaud

I warmly welcome your interest on tourism..Not every one is interested in Tourism or related shares

Yes I agree the toilet issue in SL.. In leading tourist destinations they have overcome this possible barrier .

Regarding repeated business and loyal customer base let me quote this from TANG.N000

Company has decided to revisit its dependency  on Russian market and to diversify the Product to include many tourists from different destinations.

Many discounts offered for locals during off-season like many other hotels..

The hotels in Waskaduwa often recognize and reward the repeated customers. Tangerine annual report state that they have identified 275 repeaters mainly from UK,Germany, Holland, Russia, and Ukraine.

Ayyo balanda these shoeshine boys making fun of South Indians but not providing toilets for the suddas.

If you go to Adams peak or worlds end. I feel sorry for you as you have to empty your bloody bladder high up there as you are required to take in fluids by the lire's.

If you swim in the sea you will empty your beer filled bladder and make the fish giddy.

if you go to MECCA during the festival time there is no return way or valve. You go straight to Heaven. (That's what sometimes happen)

if you fall into a drain, you just piss off

or get kicked by a waiter for leaving a small tip, you become incontinent!

hope your only memory of SL is a piss!

There is a relatively new tourist attraction in Nuwara Eliya- Sada Gala Thanna

You cant travel in your own vehicle you have to hire a safari kind of a jeep.. The driver said that Sri Lankans and Arabs like this tour as there is less walking... Contrast to that Arabs and Sri Lankans dont like World's End as you have to walk a lot...

Poor lazy SLs and Arabs...

Trekking was never in our tourist options, unlike other parts of the world, though plenty of good options are available.
Though some try to duplicate white water rafting here, it was not a success because the rapids are not so challenging in that area.
I think trekking has better chance of success than rafting. Very Happy

A study shows Luxury and Budget price hotels are thriving and Mid priced hotels are squeezing. How can this affect to the tourism sector shares. I feel we have few luxury type giants like AHUN, KHL etc. What are these middle category? does many of the listed hotels stocks listed in CSE belongs to the middle category?

CHOT has in their possession a lot of landmark scenic locations in the country. When Gardiner (who I suspect is not an innovative entrepreneur) reconstituted the management about 4 years ago, I was expecting them to hit a blue water niche in the mid- 3 star category that was neglected by the big players who were overly focused on the upper end market. It did not happen but i believe in the right hands CHOT has huge potential.

When I last visited Dubai in 2015 there was no Theme Park but Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi.

But for those who visit Dubai in 2016 there will be a Theme Park.

A big musical event like Enrique Iglasias also attract tourists as well as would helpful to gain good publicity for the country. In recent years we saw such events taking place annually, Yanni's show in last year.
International cricket tournaments also attracted some big numbers of tourists in the past, notably Bami Army of England, again with a good publicity too.

In 2010, we set a target of 2.5 million touristsa and $ 2.5 billiln revenue by 2016, it seems we will achieve revenue target by the end of 2015, but 2.5 million number will take few more years, Although this trend has not exactly reflected in listed hotel occupancy rates. Now tourism industry is getting stronger and now is the time for both private and state sector to engage in new things, new events including Casinos to be competitive like Dubai, Malaysia, Thailand etc, specially to attract niche markets.

It is unavoidable to have a spike in vices along with the increase in tourism and that is something we all have to be mindful all the time.
Even if we promote & market our existing attractions well, we can beat many, hands down, even without thinking of adding more & newer attractions.

During last holidays I stayed in a hotel in Kalutara.. Thanx to Expressways and well build road network there were rush to move far away from Colombo and as share trader I like to move away from the herd and find green pastures uncrowded..

I met a nice Russian family.. Like many other tourists I ve met he said " Your country is a Paradise and its the paradise mentioned in many Holy Books"... thus as per him SL should attract more tourists...

He and his wife are looking after two babies and almost staying in the hotel and nearby beach without walking and enjoying the area around.. He said many tourist with little babies avoid SL as we lack tourist baby sitting facility.. That really surprised me.. " Baby Sitting for tourist babies..." He said that is available in Thai Land, and just now I checked the authenticity of his statement... Yeah hotel's offer nanny's service.. What a opportunity ?

Yes and even some airports have this facility.

(I think the problem with us is that we do not listen to customers. There are lots of SL studied & got married in Russia too. You can easily find Native Russian speaker in SL, if doors can be opened).

Yes Kith,, at least for the Season of Tourism ( December) , our hotels can offer this service... Hotels have to find new and attractive means to enhance their income.. We traditionally follow the same old tactics..

I met a nice Russian family.. Like many other tourists I ve met he said " Your country is a Paradise and its the paradise mentioned in many Holy Books"... thus as per him SL should attract more tourists...

He and his wife are looking after two babies and almost staying in the hotel and nearby beach without walking and enjoying the area around.. He said many tourist with little babies avoid SL as we lack tourist baby sitting facility.. That really surprised me.. " Baby Sitting for tourist babies..." He said that is available in Thai Land, and just now I checked the authenticity of his statement... Yeah hotel's offer nanny's service.. What a opportunity ?

This is true, even in maldives, most of the resorts have these baby sitting centres called Kids Clubs..... though maldives is famous as a honeymoon destination...

But I have not seen this facility in srilankan hotels....

This is a good opportunity to tap different market segment....
