The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Visit Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and Sri Vijayarama Viharaya for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at Colombo National Museum and The Bandaranaike Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Negombo Beach (in Negombo), Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum (in Kalutara) and Bentota (Bentota Beach & Sea Turtle Protection Association). Next up on the itinerary: take in the exciting artwork at Ganeshism Studio Gallery and take in the spiritual surroundings of Borella All Saints Church.

In December, daily temperatures in Colombo can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
