The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Stone 'N' String and Noritake Factory Store. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Kande Viharaya (in Aluthgama), Negombo (Scuba & Snorkeling, Negombo Beach, & more) and Kalutara (West Coast Tattoo Studio & Kalutara Bodhiya). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Mount Lavinia Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Anthony s Church Kochikade Colombo, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Seema Malakaya Temple.

For ratings, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Colombo road trip tool .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
