  • What a beautiful place! If you're in the area scare you first; the outside walls look bad and need to be genoveerd. The roof is apparently ready. Once inside you will be affected by the atmosphere. Hundreds of years of history, sometimes past glory, but to in every corner feel the history of the Church and the people.

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.
