The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Popular historic sites such as Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and Borella All Saints Church are in your itinerary. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct and Stone 'N' String. Get out of town with these interesting Colombo side-trips: Moragalla (Sriyan Jewellers & Dara Gems & Jewellery), Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa (in Hikkaduwa) and Negombo (Angurukaramulla Temple, Negombo Beach, &more). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Colombo National Museum, don't miss a visit to Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara, explore the world behind art at The Galleries of Sapumal Foundation, and look for gifts at Barefoot.

For more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Colombo online road trip planner.
