The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
You'll get in some beach time at Hikkaduwa Beach and Bentota Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Galle Fort and Old Kathiresan Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Negombo (Negombo Beach & St. Anne's Church), Stick No Bills Poster Gallery (in Galle) and Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage (in Pinnawala). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, enjoy the sand and surf at Mount Lavinia Beach, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour.

In October in Colombo, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 29°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
