The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Shop till you drop at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct and West Coast Tattoo Studio. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and Thewaththa Church (Basilica Ragama). Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia (Our Turtle Conservation Project & Sri Lanka Air Force Museum), Kalutara (Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum, Kalutara Beach, & more) and The Marina (in Kahapola). Spend the 20th (Fri) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Treat yourself to a day of pampering on the 30th (Mon) at some of the best spas. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Negombo Beach, get engrossed in the history at Colombo National Museum, kick back and relax at Mount Lavinia Beach, and walk around Galle Face Green.
