The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Head to Dara Gems and Jewellery and Barefootfor some retail therapy. Museum-lovers will appreciate Colombo National Museum and Tsunami Photo Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Beruwala Beach (in Beruwala), Negombo (Negombo Beach & Dutch Canal) and Bentota Beach (in Bentota). Spend the 20th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: browse the different shops at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, look for gifts at ODEL, enjoy the sand and surf at Mount Lavinia Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple.
