The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and Colombo National Museum. Get in touch with nature at Bentota Beach and Sea Turtle Protection Association. Venture out of the city with trips to Negombo (DIANA Souvenirs & Negombo Beach) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Kalutara). There's more to do: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour and browse the different shops at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct.

To see maps, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Colombo trip maker website .

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in November, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
