Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kalutara Bodhiya and Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple. We've included these beaches for you: Beruwala Beach and Negombo Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colombo: Negombo (Negombo Fish Market & Muthurajawela Marsh), Kande Viharaya (in Aluthgama) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Kalutara). Next up on the itinerary: look for gifts at Stone 'N' String, kick back and relax at Panadura Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Seema Malaka Temple, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Anthony's Church Kochikade Colombo.
