Sri Lanka is experiencing a boom in tourism after security forces crushed the Tamil Tiger rebels in May 2009, ending 37-years of ethnic bloodshed. Tourist arrivals have risen to a record 758,458 from January to November this year, which is 33.1 percent more than the same figures reported in 2010. AFP PHOTO
