Colombo

days
Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
For shopping fun, head to Tsunami Photo Museum or Barefoot. Get some cultural insight at National Zoological Gardens of Sri Lanka and St. Mary's Church. Take a break from Colombo with a short trip to Negombo Beach in Negombo, about 52 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Colombo National Museum, stroll through Mount Lavinia Beach, browse the different shops at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, and look for gifts at Stone 'N' String.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Colombo custom trip planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
