Overview

Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital, its biggest city and port. The cosmopolitan face of the country, it is also the financial and commercial capital of the country. Walk through its streets and the colonial buildings speak of a time bygone. But then walk into the next street, and the latest brand stores, apartments, and snazziest cars catch your eye, indicating the coming together of two different eras, the rise of a nation. When in Colombo, visit the national museum if you want to understand the country’s history. Chill at the Galle Face Promenade with your loved one in the evening, or just roam the street bazaar at Pettah and mingle with the locals.
