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.
Attractions like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Kalutara Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Negombo Beach and Mount Lavinia Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: DIANA Souvenirs (in Negombo) and Beruwala Beach (in Beruwala). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, don't miss a visit to Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoological Gardens of Sri Lanka, and look for gifts at Stone 'N' String.
