Sri Lanka Tourism to launch Monkey Kingdom in China

s

The Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB) will be launching a promotion to woo Chinese tourists to the island with Disney’s nature epic ‘Monkey Kingdom’.

Working in partnership with SriLankan Airlines and the Shanghai Tourism Promotion Bureau, the promotion will offer 20 lucky children the chance to visit Sri Lanka and explore the ancient city of Polonnaruwa where Monkey Kingdom was filmed.

Participants will also receive the same educational pack that was launched in the United States in tandem with the film that grossed $ 16.5 million in box office ticket sales since its launch.

Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau Chairman Rohantha Athukorala stated that the initiative will help to further increase the number of Chinese tourists visiting Sri Lanka which during the first half of 2015 grew by 81% to 94,500 arrivals.
