Bloodshed to Business Destination: How Sri Lanka Fought Back

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Aug. 19, 2014) - Summer has finally come to an end, yet the changes to the travel market show no sign of letting up anytime soon. Countries have transformed, new travel opportunities emerged, and the scope for adventure is far and above what it was only a few years ago. Worry not though, because the new autumn issue of Business Destinations magazine is here to help you through today's emerging tourism locales and the hottest business travel opportunities the world has to offer.

After decades of civil war and economic turmoil, Sri Lanka has come to be seen as a promising investment opportunity and a budding tourism market. We at Business Destinations have, therefore, decided to look at the many ways in which Sri Lanka has changed for the better and delve into the best places to eat, meet and stay whilst there. The country is far from alone in instrumenting a turnaround of this type, however, and the new issue of Business Destinations also looks at Nicaragua's newfound tourism credentials and the rise of the Berlin Wall as a lucrative attraction, 25 years after its fall.

Also in the autumn issue of Business Destinations is a look at the spiraling costs of so-called mega events, and whether occasions such as the Olympics and the World Cup are just too costly to carry on with. We talk to British-born Iranian Cyrus Massoudi about his four-year trip to his family homeland, and the world-renowned stuntman Gary Connery about his most memorable trips and career highlights.

For an insight into the ever-changing dynamics of the travel and tourism business, and a brief look at this season's must-see attractions, take a look at the new autumn issue of Business Destinations, available to read online and in print now.
