Things to do in and around Colombo

As the capital city of the resplendent island formerly known as Ceylon, Colombo not only boasts rich cultural heritage, but also offers an interesting mix of colonial buildings, high-rises, temples, cathedrals and shopping malls.

Visit Sri Lanka’s National Museum, stroll through the sprawling parks, unwind in a chic bar and savour an authentic Sri Lankan curry in a gourmet restaurant. Shop for souvenirs in a shopping mall or street-side bazaars.
