First Sri Lanka Travel Guide in Arabic
The first travel guide on Sri Lanka in Arabic Language penned by a UAE national, was launched yesterday at the Sri Lanka pavilion in the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai.
The author of the book is Heba Al Mansoori. Al Mansoori said the book is a “labour of love” and proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to a charity. The initial print run of the book is 10,000 copies in both hard bound and soft bound copies. She said that due to the many decades of national conflict in Sri Lanka, some Arab travellers had misconceptions about Sri Lanka and her attempt was to put this to rest.
