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: Negombo (Negombo Beach & Selyn), Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage (in Pinnawala) and Galle (Galle Fort & Pilgrims Lounge Chrishtopher Handicraft and Paint Gallery). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, take an in-depth tour of Colombo National Museum, stroll around Galle Face Green, and take in the exciting artwork at Ganeshism Studio Gallery.

For maps, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Colombo road trip planner.
