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 Beruwala Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Shop till you drop at Stone 'N' String and Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colombo: Kande Viharaya Temple (in Dharga Town), Negombo (St. Mary's Church, Negombo Beach, &more) and Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa (in Hikkaduwa). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Kalutara Bodhiya, get engrossed in the history at Colombo National Museum, walk around Galle Face Green, and get to know the resident critters at National Zoological Gardens of Sri Lanka.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Colombo road trip planning site.

In November, daily temperatures in Colombo can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
