The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Stone 'N' String and Kande Viharaya. Visiting Negombo Beach and Mount Lavinia Beach will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colombo: Beruwala Beach (in Beruwala), Negombo (St. Mary's Church, St. Sebastian’s Church, & more) and Kalutara Bodhiya (in Kalutara). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, make a trip to Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and identify plant and animal life at Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Colombo itinerary maker tool .

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in November, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
