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 Kayaking & Canoeing. Shop till you drop at Stone 'N' String and Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colombo: Negombo (St. Mary's Church, Negombo Beach, &more), Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa (in Hikkaduwa) and Kande Viharaya Temple (in Dharga Town). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, step into the grandiose world of National Zoological Gardens of Sri Lanka, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and see the interesting displays at Colombo National Museum.

To see where to stay, maps, photos, and more tourist information, use the Colombo day trip planner.

In November, daytime highs in Colombo are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
