While Daily Candy is vapid, the civil war has been going on for decades, and I think that Sri Lanka could us the tourism dollars. So I'm not exactly sure that M.I.A. helps the situation by portraying it as a place you'd never want to venture. I found the Bourdain No Reservations on Sri Lanka very honest on this point — a beautiful and uniquely cultured place with real troubles but also worth a considered visit.
