The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
St. Mary's Church and Colombo Fort will appeal to history buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to Tsunami Photo Museum and Richmond Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Kalutara (Kalutara Beach & Kalutara Bodhiya), Negombo (LUV SL Negombo, Negombo Beach, & more) and Beruwala (Beruwala Beach, Barberyn Island Lighthouse, & more). There's lots more to do: stroll through Bentota Beach, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Mount Lavinia Beach, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
