The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Head to Vogue Jewellers and Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinctfor plenty of shopping. Step out of the city life by going to Bentota Beach and Safaris. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colombo: Sea Turtle Protection Association (in Bentota) and Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum (in Kalutara). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Colombo National Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, get your game on at VRx, and view the masterpieces at Ganeshism Studio Gallery.
