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 Stone 'N' String and Noritake Factory Storefor plenty of shopping. You'll get in some beach time at Mount Lavinia Beach and Negombo Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kalutara Bodhiya (in Kalutara), Kande Viharaya Temple (in Dharga Town) and Negombo (Scuba & Snorkeling, St. Mary's Church, &more). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, buy something for everyone on your list at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, browse the eclectic array of goods at Pettah, and walk around Galle Face Green.
