The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Get out of town with these interesting Colombo side-trips: Bentota (Sea Turtle Protection Association & Bentota Beach) and Brief Garden - Bevis Bawa (in Beruwala). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, take an in-depth tour of Colombo National Museum, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

For traveler tips, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, read our Colombo trip planning app.

In May in Colombo, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 30°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
