The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Take a break from the city and head to Ahungalla Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Do some cultural sightseeing at Dutch Reformed Church and Shri Ponnambalawaneswaram Kovil. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colombo: Kowilawatta Temple (in Balapitiya), Narigama Beach (in Hikkaduwa) and Spas (in Galle). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kande Viharaya Temple, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and stroll through Kosgoda Turtle Care.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Colombo trip itinerary planning site .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In December in Colombo, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
