Colombo

— 4 nights
The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Kids will enjoy Scuba & Snorkeling and Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple. Shop till you drop at Jewel Qudsi and Ganeshism Studio Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Negombo (Negombo Beach & Safaris) and Bentota Beach (in Bentota). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Independence Memorial Hall, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Mary's Church, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Christ The Living Saviour.
