A novel experience was witnessed at the Bentota beach. It was a programme mooted to turn out sand-based products.
It was organized under the guidance of the Sri Lanka Tourist Board. Many local and well as foreign tourists made untiring attempts to produce various items. A large crowd was present to witness the event, in which only sand and water were being used. A notable feature was the production of items within a very short period. Such events will be a monthly feature, which is mainly targeted in promoting tourism. Foreigners displayed keen enthusiasm in the event.
