The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Escape the urban bustle at Negombo Beach and Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Colombo National Museum and Colombo Fort. Get out of town with these interesting Colombo side-trips: Beruwala (Beruwala Beach & Brief Garden - Bevis Bawa), Negombo (Angurukaramulla Temple, Dutch Canal, & more) and Moragalla (Sriyan Jewellers & Dara Gems & Jewellery). Next up on the itinerary: stop by Stone 'N' String, enjoy the sand and surf at Mount Lavinia Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kalutara Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple.
