The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Step out of the city life by going to Beruwala Beach and Hikkaduwa Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Narigama Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Venture out of the city with trips to Ahungalla Beach (in Ahungalla) and Victor Hasselblad Sea Turtle Research & Conservation Center (in Kosgoda). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Anthony's Shrine, take in the spiritual surroundings of Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, explore the galleries of Ganeshism Studio Gallery, and see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour.

To see reviews, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Colombo journey website.

People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Step out of the city life by going to Solang Valley and Solang Nullah. Explore hidden gems such as Jogini Waterfall and Bhrigu Lake. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Hidimba Devi Temple and explore the activities along Beas River.
