The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Venture out of the city with trips to Negombo (Negombo Beach & Selyn), Galle (Galle Fort & Pilgrims Lounge Chrishtopher Handicraft and Paint Gallery) and Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage (in Pinnawala). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, don't miss a visit to Independence Square, take an in-depth tour of Colombo National Museum, and kick back and relax at Bentota Beach.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, read our Colombo route builder website.

Negombo to Colombo is an approximately 1- hour bus ride. You can also drive. September in Colombo sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 30°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can catch the bus back home.
