The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Colombo City Walks, Tuk Tuk Safari Sri Lanka and Rhythm and Blues. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Negombo (DIANA Souvenirs & Negombo Beach). And it doesn't end there: walk around Galle Face Green, don't miss a visit to Independence Square, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and buy something for everyone on your list at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Colombo online travel planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in April, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
