Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Colombo National Museum and Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum. Discover out-of-the-way places like Dolphin & Whale Watching and National Telecommunication Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colombo: Sri Lanka Air Force Museum (in Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia), Kalutara Bodhiya (in Kalutara) and Beruwala (Beruwala Beach & Barberyn Island Lighthouse). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Negombo Beach, get engrossed in the history at The Bandaranaike Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kande Viharaya, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Anthony's Shrine.

For reviews, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Colombo travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in August, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
