What We Love About Colombo

Known as the capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo is fast becoming a must-visit destination in the country. Previously known as a mere stopover point for those heading to other nearby destinations, the Colombo you see today is remarkedly different. Having gone through some changes, the city is now considered a hotspot for its culture, history, and nightlife. Explore the vibrant colonial city of Colombo with visits to the beautiful Galle Face area and stops at the Town Hall, Viharamahadevi Park, and Independence Square. Drop by the floating market of Pettah and discover the Sri Kaileswaram Hindu Temple which is famous for its vibrant ceiling artwork.
