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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib and Heritage Transport Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Humayun's Tomb and Chhatarpur Temple. Change things up with a short trip to The Great India Place in Noida (about 30 minutes away). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Rajpath, don't miss a visit to India Gate, admire the striking features of Rashtrapati Bhavan, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Birla Mandir Temple (Lakshmi Narayan).

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Get in touch with nature at Elephant Freedom Project and Narigama Beach. Visit Kande Viharaya Temple and Saint Mary's Church for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Colombo: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Kalutara), Kosgoda Turtle Care (in Kosgoda) and Ahungalla Beach (in Ahungalla). There's lots more to do: look for gifts at Salie's Fine Jewelry & Gem Stones, take in the spiritual surroundings of Masjid ul Abrar, view the masterpieces at Ganeshism Studio Gallery, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Anthony's Shrine.
