The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Vogue Jewellers and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Venture out of the city with trips to Kalutara (Ashokaramaya Temple & Kalutara Bodhiya). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Christ The Living Saviour, get outside with Diyatha Uyana, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Seema Malakaya Temple.

For reviews, photos, and more tourist information, read Colombo trip itinerary planning website.

If you are flying in from The Netherlands, the closest major aiports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In September in Colombo, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 30°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
