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 Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get some historical perspective at St Anthony's Shrine and Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Colombo side-trips: Kalutara (Kalutara Bodhiya & Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum), Kande Viharaya Temple (in Dharga Town) and Negombo (Dolphin & Whale Watching & St. Mary's Church). The adventure continues: stop by Barefoot, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Borella All Saints Church, take an in-depth tour of Colombo National Museum, and browse the different shops at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct.
