The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Walking tours and Kalutara Bodhiya. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colombo: Beruwala (Beruwala Beach, Barberyn Island Lighthouse, & more), Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia (Sri Anjaneyar Temple & Our Turtle Conservation Project) and Kande Viharaya (in Aluthgama). Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Seema Malakaya Temple, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Anthony's Shrine.
