The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Venture out of the city with trips to Galle (Galle Fort & Pilgrims Lounge Chrishtopher Handicraft and Paint Gallery), Kowilawatta Temple (in Balapitiya) and Pinnawala (Mahamevnawa Amadahara Buddhist Monastery Pinnawala & Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage). Spend the 15th (Sun) in the pleasant surroundings of Elephant Freedom Project. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Bentota Beach, stroll around Galle Face Green, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hikkaduwa Beach, and make a trip to Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara.

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
