The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. Visit Hikkaduwa Beach and Mount Lavinia Beach for some beach relaxation. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Palace Seaside and Ganeshism Studio Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Hikkaduwa (Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa, Community Tsunami Museum, &more), Galle (Galle Fort, Pilgrims Lounge Chrishtopher Handicraft and Paint Gallery, &more) and Bentota (Sea Turtle Protection Association & Dolphin & Whale Watching). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, get engrossed in the history at The Bandaranaike Museum, learn about all things military at Sri Lanka Air Force Museum, and admire the masterpieces at The Galleries of Sapumal Foundation.
