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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Beruwala Beach and St. Mary's Church. Get outdoors at Negombo Beach and Mount Lavinia Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colombo: Aluthgama (Kande Viharaya, Ayesha Gems and Jewellers, & more), Kalutara (Kalutara Bodhiya, West Coast Tattoo Studio, & more) and Negombo (Scuba & Snorkeling, Selyn, & more). Pack the 11th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Guruge Nature Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, don't miss a visit to Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara, stop by Stone 'N' String, and get engrossed in the history at Colombo National Museum.

To find more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Colombo holiday planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In January in Colombo, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 27°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
