Colombo

3.7
The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city. Sightseeing in Colombo takes in the colonial British buildings dotted across town, as well as the towering skyscrapers in the business districts, and the modern developments along the waterfront. The older quarters offer interesting antique shops and eateries, a number of public parks and gardens harking back to the city's colonial past, and new shopping districts that house a number of stylish restaurants, cafes, and malls. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Sri Lanka using our trip planner.
