Tourism Development at Arugambay

Developing tourism at Arugambay and Eastern province, I wish to mention that Eastern province is having wider region for tourism development area spanning Nillaveli beach to Arugambay beach with rich natural attractions and potentials.

My opinion is with destroying naturea??s Purchase avalide cost gift develop tourism with some improvements without changing ecology of area. I am suggesting the ministry of tourism to declare eastern province as a natural tourism resorts, because we have areas that have an asset form cultural , natural, heritage, conservations, mountains, sand dues , lakes, forest, wild life, parks costal and maries our area concern multi religious, multi cultural, multi ethnic and multi lingual.

Tourism industry makes important contribution to the economy of developing countries particularly to foreign exchange earnings and employments. We have also traditional tourism area Nilaveli beach, Passikkuda and Arugambay beach. But Arugambay is well known destination of green paddy field, forest, wild lifea??s, bird watching, variety of wild life animals and crocodiles.

Pottuvill-Agugambay offers a combination of unique pleasure, perfect niche tourist destination for surfing one of the ten best surfing destination in the world and diving within 15 minutes driving from Arugambgay. Tourist can view elephants at Lahugala, birds and various wild life animals in Kumana Natural Park within 60 minutes driving from Arugambay. I strongly suggest ArugambayA? need sustainable tourism development , because there are enough resources potential, natural environment and best romantic locations, as refers before/earlier we need tourism development that avoid damages to the environment, economy, culture of the locations and eco-system where it take place.

The aim of the sustainable tourism is to ensure that development is a positive experience for local people. Traditional beaches and sight seeing tourism is vital to Sri Lanka communities surrounds the hotels and the other tourism area. Therefore design to empower, engage and financially sustain village communities without compromising their traditional values the tourism to discover local habitats and respect traditional cultures.

Tourism is one of many activates in a community or region that required planning coordination . Planning is the process of identifying objectives and defining and evaluation of methods of resources in the eastern province.

Developing a sustainable tourism industry to Arugambay, gain maximum economic and the other benefits and to meet the challenges faced by the region.

Tourism authority must establish the foundation and direction for a focused, co-ordination and united approach to the future development of tourism and develop strengthen industry, take local organization linkage before planning any tourism development activities such as coordination from provincial council, local council (Pradeshya Sabha), community leaders from all communities and divisional secretarial and politician.
