Colombo — 3 nights

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Thu): walk around Galle Face Green, then stop by Vishwa Spice and Ayurveda Herbal Shop, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, and finally get the lay of the land with Walking tours. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 22nd (Fri): soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers and then enjoy the sand and surf at Negombo Beach.

India's Teardrop
Shaped like a teardrop and located just below the southern tip of India, lush Sri Lanka boasts some of the greatest biodiversity in the world. Unless you time your Sri Lanka holiday for monsoon season, you can expect bright blue skies and plenty of sunshine, perfect for exploring tropical forests, historic temples, colonial forts, and many other buildings dating back to Dutch rule. Popular things to do in Sri Lanka include swimming, sailing, and surfing, though a growing number of visitors come here just to eat their way around the country. Greatly influenced by nearby India, the national cuisine also features many elements of European cooking--a result of the Dutch and Portuguese colonial years. Of course, a trip to Sri Lanka would not be complete without a cup of its world-famous Ceylon tea.
