Designed by notable English architects and proclaimed India's capital in 1931, New Delhi sits in the middle of a sprawling metropolitan area with a population of over 25 million.
For shopping fun, head to The Great India Place or DLF Mall Of India. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib and Select Citywalk. There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Rajpath, admire the landmark architecture of ISKCON Temple Delhi, contemplate the long history of Mehrauli Archaeological Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sai Baba Temple.

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Kande Viharaya Temple and St Anthony's Shrine. Bring the kids along to Ahungalla Beach and Narigama Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Bentota (Bentota Beach & Sea Turtle Protection Association), Sea Turtle Hatchery (in Ambalangoda) and Elephant Freedom Project (in Kegalle). There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, get outside with Outdoor Activities, look for gifts at Salie's Fine Jewelry & Gem Stones, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kosgoda Turtle Care.

When traveling from New Delhi in December, plan for somewhat warmer days and warmer nights in Colombo: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
