Colombo

Trip Planner Asia  /  Sri Lanka  /  Western Province  /  Colombo
The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city. Sightseeing in Colombo takes in the colonial British buildings dotted across town, as well as the towering skyscrapers in the business districts, and the modern developments along the waterfront. The older quarters offer interesting antique shops and eateries, a number of public parks and gardens harking back to the city's colonial past, and new shopping districts that house a number of stylish restaurants, cafes, and malls. Colombo is in Western Province. Put Colombo at the heart of your travel plans by using our Sri Lanka trip maker site .

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.
