Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Family-friendly places like Negombo Beach and National Zoological Gardens of Sri Lanka will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Colombo side-trips: Kalutara (Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum, Kalutara Bodhiya, & more). On the 18th (Tue), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. Spend the 17th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, walk around Viharamahadevi Park, and kick back and relax at Mount Lavinia Beach.

To see traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Colombo driving holiday app .

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In June, daytime highs in Colombo are 37°C, while nighttime lows are 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
