Colombo’s many attractions appeal to varying types of travellers. Cultural aficionados can have their fill of museums such as the Colombo National Museum, colonial heritage buildings and religious sites such as the Gangaramaya Temple.

Shopaholics and foodies can visit malls, shopping precincts, and a large number of bars and restaurants that have varied culinary options. If you want to kick back and relax, take a stroll on the Galle Face Promenade, while you catch a beautiful sunset, or head to the Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct or Park Street for good food and drink and some great music.

As the country’s commercial capital, Colombo is probably the most diverse city in the island.
