The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Elephant Freedom Project. Get out of town with these interesting Colombo side-trips: Ahungalla Beach (in Ahungalla), Victor Hasselblad Sea Turtle Research & Conservation Center (in Kosgoda) and Bentota (Sea Turtle Protection Association & Bentota Beach). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, stroll through Sea Turtle Hatchery, get outside with Diyatha Uyana, and enjoy the sand and surf at Narigama Beach.

To find traveler tips, photos, maps, and tourist information, go to the Colombo trip builder app .

If you are flying in from Myanmar, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In November in Colombo, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
