Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Step off the beaten path and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Elephant Freedom Project. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colombo: Bentota (Dolphin & Whale Watching, Sea Turtle Protection Association, &more), Victor Hasselblad Sea Turtle Research & Conservation Center (in Kosgoda) and Ahungalla Beach (in Ahungalla). The adventure continues: get outside with Diyatha Uyana, stroll through Sea Turtle Hatchery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kowilawatta Temple, and stop by Vogue Jewellers.
