The Asian Youth Chess Championships were organized by the Chess Federation of Sri Lanka in a very grand scale at Chaaya Tranze Beach Resort with the support of two other Hotels, Hotel Citrus and Hotel Coral Sands. The lovely stay of 8 days with the Sri Lankan Hospitality was a great experience for all those young players attended.
