Sri Lanka


Explore Colombo

Contemporary Sri Lanka is most on display in its dynamic capital city, Colombo, where British and Dutch colonial architecture blends with modern skyscrapers, stylish seafood restaurants and spiritual shrines. Close to the main international airport, Colombo is the natural first stop on your Sri Lanka adventure to experience the melting pot of Sri Lanka, busy and bustling, with people and tuk-tuks omnipresent. Alternatively, choose to stay in Negombo, a laid-back coastal town to start your Sri Lankan adventure at a gentler pace.


  • Marvel at the ornate Buddhist & Hindu temples - Gangaramaya is a must-see
  • Visit vibrant Pettah Market for the spectacle and specialist shopping
  • Soak up Colombo’s vibrant art scene through its diverse museums and galleries
  • Take a walking tour with a local historian to appreciate the city’s story
  • Savour the gastronomy in the best restaurants, but also street-food stalls
