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: Galle (Galle Fort, Pilgrims Lounge Chrishtopher Handicraft and Paint Gallery, & more), Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage (in Pinnawala) and Hikkaduwa (Hikkaduwa Beach, Tsunami Honganji Vihara, & more). Spend the 17th (Tue) surrounded by wildlife at Elephant Freedom Project. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, kick back and relax at Mount Lavinia Beach, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

To see maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Colombo visit planner .

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in September, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
