Colombo Overview

Colombo, Sri Lanka's largest city, a beehive of commotion with more than a million inhabitants.The capital city of Srilanka with it's frenetic traffic and general chaos is a little too much for most to handle but Colombo is, however, worth a look, offering colour and some interesting attractions, like the national museum, the Pettah bazaar and some lovely temples.

Locals enjoy games of cricket, fly kites or take evening strolls watching the sunset. Beyond this lies Colombo's smart neighbourhood, Cinammon Gardens, boasting elegant mansions, tree-lined streets and the lovely Viharamaha Devi Park.

What is especially enjoyable is the variety of cuisine that can be sampled at any one of the city's plentiful bars, restaurants, sidewalk cafes and kiosks.

Adding to Sri Lanka’s natural and cultural heritage will be a breathtaking line up of first-time events that are sure to mesmerize even the most seasoned traveler.
