Colombo

Colombo

Colombo is rapidly emerging as a must-see stop in Sri Lanka. No longer just the sprawling city you have to endure on your way to the southern beaches, it has become a worthy destination in its own right.

Colombo’s cosmopolitan side is home to an abundance of stylish eateries, galleries, and museums. Surprises abound in its old quarters where you can find great local food and discover a characterful shops and cafes. Colonial Colombo's garden roots are still very much intact along its often shady boulevards. After decades of neglect, the city is in the midst of widespread historic restoration of its landmark colonial architecture, and with the growth of its cosmopolitan side, this city is continually evolving.
