The tropical island paradise of Sri Lanka is seeing a boom in terms of commercial activity. The island paradise renown for her pristine beaches and historical heritage is fast becoming recognised for her commercial activities, and as a major production site for many things ranging from Cinnamon to Air-Bags, and within the heart of her industrial persona, lies the metropolitan jungle of Colombo.
Colombo is the financial capital of Sri Lanka and the business epicentre of the nation, therefore one thing that is prevalent across her metropolitan landscape, is the presence of luxurious places to stay. Although the accommodation in Sri Lanka is stereotypically thought of as being exclusively beach-resort oriented, there are many options within the city to choose from such as Cinnamon Red Colombo, a popular Colombo city hotel.
The Colombo skyline is a vibrant mix of modern complexes and colonial buildings, but the business side of the city is very easily glimpsed by the various business people scurrying off to sales-pitches or having meetings at various cafes or restaurants during ‘high-tea’.
More or less every single one of Sri Lanka’s major corporations have their headquarters situated in the city of Colombo, and one of the major forefronts of commercial activity is the forty story Twin Tower, located in the scenic Fort district. The truly urbanised reach of Colombo can easily be labelled a sea-port city, due to its large harbour, which was the reason it was considered as the capital of Sri Lanka by the British Empire in 1815.
Colombo is also the event-capital of Sri Lanka since major venues such as Viharamahadevi Stadium and the Nelum Pokuna Amphitheatre are located here. So whether you want to hold a business gathering or a casual visit, the vibrant business hub of Sri Lanka will surely suit your fancy.
