The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and St. Mary's Church. Take a break from the city and head to Negombo Beach and Mount Lavinia Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Negombo Fish Market in Negombo (about 48 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: look for gifts at Stone 'N' String and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

For other places to visit and tourist information, you can read our Colombo trip maker tool .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
