The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colombo: Galle (Galle Fort, Pilgrims Lounge Chrishtopher Handicraft and Paint Gallery, & more), Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage (in Pinnawala) and Hikkaduwa (Hikkaduwa Beach, Tsunami Honganji Vihara, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple, stroll around Galle Face Green, examine the collection at Colombo National Museum, and stroll through Bentota Beach.

For ratings and other tourist information, refer to the Colombo online journey builder .
