The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes St Anthony's Shrine as well as Colombo Fort. Go for a jaunt from Colombo to Negombo to see Negombo Beach about 52 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, stroll around Viharamahadevi Park, and get engrossed in the history at Colombo National Museum.

For reviews, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, read Colombo trip maker .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in April, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
