    Outdoor section only, the interior was closed. Intrigued and impressed by the things dating from centuries ago that are on this site. Needs some restoration as it is now old and neglected  more »

    The "Mihara Maha Devi Park" opposite the old town hall. Recently refurbished, painted bright white is the colonial building in the Sun. Unfortunately, we could make only a photo stop and not visit the Museum housed inside.

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
