The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Step off the beaten path and head to Ahungalla Beach and Kande Viharaya Temple. Popular historic sites such as Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple and Seema Malakaya Temple are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colombo: Bentota (Spas, Sea Turtle Protection Association, & more), Kalutara (Kalutara Bodhiya & Dolphin & Whale Watching) and Victor Hasselblad Sea Turtle Research & Conservation Center (in Kosgoda). There's lots more to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Asokaramaya Buddhist Temple, and kick back and relax at Beruwala Beach.

Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Thu) so you can travel back home.
