The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Beruwala Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and Borella All Saints Church. You'll get in some beach time at Bentota Beach and Negombo Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Sea Turtle Protection Association (in Bentota), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Negombo) and Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project (in Kosgoda). It doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Colombo National Museum.
