If you are thinking about spending your holiday in Sri Lanka, the best place to begin it with is Colombo. It’s the commercial capital of the country, but indeed has many things to see and explore.
Staying in Colombo
Since Colombo is located within easy access to the BIA (International Airport of the country), many travellers spend 1-2 days in Colombo before heading anywhere else. If your question in mind is ‘where to stay in Colombo?’ know that there are many options for you such as Cinnamon Red Colombo.
Getting around in Colombo
Yes, the city has busses and trains, but the best way to get around will always be by tuk-tuks. They are cheap and amazingly fast. You may also use Uber when you are in Colombo.
Things to see in Colombo
Head to the Gangaramaya Temple in the morning to see thousands of Buddhist statues. Then, there are also other attractions such as the Red Mosque, the Dutch Hospital, the Lotus Tower, and several shopping malls to be explored. Head to Galle Face Beach in the evening.
Colombo is the central hub of transportation. So, quite easily and cheaply, you may head to any other destination in Sri Lanka from Colombo. Be it Kandy, Anuradhapura, Nuwara Eliya, or anywhere else!
