Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Head to Barefoot and West Coast Tattoo Studiofor plenty of shopping. Museum-lovers will get to explore Colombo National Museum and Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Colombo side-trips: Negombo (Negombo Beach, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more), Kalutara Bodhiya (in Kalutara) and Kande Viharaya (in Aluthgama). Spend the 25th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Borella All Saints Church, and browse the different shops at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct.
